Re: Best place to hunt for Mule Deer & Antelope?

I'm looking forward to some similar experiences with my wife. She's been shooting for almost a year at the range, but she says she's ready to do some hunting!

    Canadianlefty, they don't grow velvet. The horns shed each fall around the end of October on in to November. The horns are constructed of hair-like material (sort of like your fingernail.) When they shed it comes off as a sheath. In other words the horns are hollow inside. (see picture below) Underneath is bone with new hair growing. If you don't believe me, talk to any taxidermist that's worth a darn in your area and ask him about cleaning antelope horns and the skull/bone underneath for mounting. I live in the heart of antelope country and in 10 years I have found a grand total of 4 antelope sheds. They deteriorate quickly and near as I can tell little critters love to eat them.

    If you really want to know more go to the site I borrowed the image from. It has a good article all about antelope. Here is a link to the article.
