    Excerpt from the Book: "Elk, caribou and moose, all generally being creatures of more open areas, rely on their oversized antlers in part for long-distance connection and recognition. In the tundra and open prairie, though, the constant force of the blowing wind can exact a price for that communication."

    Summary of Material (from the publisher):
  • A handbook on the many ways to use antlers
  • Covers whitetail deer, mule deer, moose, caribou, and elk antlers
  • Gives a detailed explanation of Boone and Crockett scoring and instructions for making a wide variety of antler craft items

    There's no question that antlers are hot these days, with collectors paying top dollar for quality racks and everyone from hunters to hikers searching for them in fields and backwoods across the country. Handicraft techniques have moved far beyond the basic trophy mount as well, and one can find antler knives, antler pipes, and even antler chandeliers in shops and homes. Dennis Walrod's Antlers offers an entertaining and informative survey of all things antler, from their biology to their role in Native American culture to the sordid side of the antler boom. (Dubbed "the new ivory" by some, they have a lively presence on the Asian aphrodisiac market.) The book is also loaded with practical information and step-by-step instructions for collectors and craftsmen, designed to maximize the use (and profit) you can get out of your antlers.
