    I found a shed with a brand new tractor tire! Farmer Brown wasn't happy about THAT little discovery! LOL!
    Bubba - Are you telling us that there is a difference in the antlers of farm-raised deer and free-ranging deer, and that you can tell the difference by looking at a picture of an antler shed?
    I think you should submit a inquiry to Outdoor Life offering to write an article about it.

    Here is another deer shed antler.
    No two alike.
    BTW, when a deer sheds its velvet, the antler tips are very pointy, and during the season the tips become rounded and lose about an inch of length.
    On a 12-point buck, his Boone and Crockett score could suffer a 12-point loss if taken very later in the season.

    Yes, but it's normally rounded.
    That looks flat.
    Photo shopped or at best, farm raised.

    It should be slightly arced or rounded. That looks flat.
    Photo shop or farm deer.

    The pedicle is the stump on the deer's skull from which the antler grows.

    Tree, It looks like a real antler to me.
    Take a walk inside Honker's Cabela's and see some of the heavy beam monster buck mounts hanging on the wall.

    No. It's just the use of a wide angle lens on a close subject.

    I found a moose antler in Maine and the red squirrels had chew groves in it.
    My younger brother told me if your hunting and you hear something chewing on a bone, follow the red squirrels.
    They will take you to an antler.
    Found nice elk antlers on a skull in Yellowstone. You could not take anything out from the park.
    I never found a nice size whitetail antler.
