I sold a bunch of whitetail antlers for over $700.00 this year.
They give $12-15.00 a pound for them in WY and always running ads.
Had many years worth of racks and, like you I had no room or idea what I wanted to do with them.
Interesting, I'll have to do some research around here. Might be a good chunk towards a new rifle.

What do "they" do with them?

They broker them. Some go to Asian markets, some go for lamp and furniture making, and some for dog chews... depending on quality and size.
The buyers do this full-time and travel around to various states with large trailers. The guy I sold to was from Utah and had a large flatbed trailer, a large enclosed trailer, and his pickup full of antlers. They run ads in the paper and post notices in gas stations and stores as to when and where they will be buying.
