    What to do with antlers in velvet??

    I've got a pair of antlers in velvet (in the freezer) taken off a 6-pointer stag we shot in January.

    so - is there a buyer for them as is? I need the room in my freezer for dog tucker.

    Depends what stage they are at but probably no value in them to sell. Feed chunks of it to your dogs. Really good for the old ones, especially ones with arthritis, sore bones, muscles etc.

    Find a korean or Chinese herbalist. they will like pay you for it.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
