Being you have so many running through the yard seems like you may get lucky and one could drop them on you door step for ya!

That's pretty sweet to have those guys running around outside your place..thanks for sharing

cheers,

I have never been so lucky. Out at the cabin there are a some really big bulls, I snowshoe a lot in the spring and always have an eye peeled for anything out of the ordinary but never found antlers. Maybe this year eh?

Ard,
With all those bulls running around you, you are bound to come across something before to long!

I have always thought it would be sweet to find one of those moose spoons you have up that way that you could use as a rocking chair! ha!

Although I realize it is some rugged terrain, I can only imagine the difficulty in finding them.

Like ya said, keep your eyes peeled!

To give you a better idea what to look for....As you can see.... they sure blend in.... and they are all shapes and sizes!

This may be the smallest moose "spoon" I ever found! Never the less a moose spoon.

And even in the snow they are bound to hide from you!

I have been to Alaska a couple of times once where I spent three months, but for what ever reason I never did see a bull moose!
Probably a hundred or hundreds of cows and calf, but never a bull.....

I am pretty fond of moose to say the least so thanks again for sharing the pics, your a lucky guy!
Cheers!
Watson

Watson,

You don't know how much I would like to find one like your second picture! If I found an antler like that I believe I would have to get creative. Maybe a hand made Bush knife with a big moose antler grip, that's a nice one

Well like I said your are bound to find one like that before to long!

Someone is finding them out along that road where they like to hang out by your house, this time of year.
It's just a matter of being the first one to be there once they drop! Easier said then done......

I have found them on trails of all sorts, roads included! Not necessarily moose antlers but antlers in general....

I have also tried to get creative with a few antlers here and there but honestly they are pretty artsy all on their own. Belt buckles, knife handles, lamps, paintings and engravings are all things that I have played around with.

Cheers!
Watson
