    I'm not a trophy hunter at all, and when I do get a bull. I just leave the antlers at the kill. I figure some hunter, or shed hunter will find them. What am I missing dollar wise? What would a 5x5 or 6x6 be worth as an example?

    They sell them on Ebay, just go there and do a search for "elk antler" or "deer antler" and you'll get plenty of examples.

    It depends on how big of a 5x5 or 6x6 it is... I had some 400" sheds that I sold for $600.

    I let my 1 year old Lab have most of the ones I found last fall. I am looking forward to taking him out this spring to see if he finds any.

    jenbickle you got robbed out of your 400 rack. fast 600 is hard to turn down though but you coulda got 1g-1500 for those. moose antlers is where the mula is though. and trophy whities. headed out in morn to do some glassing alot of taxidermist will take your smaller sets, 150-170 range for deer, make mounts of them and sell the heads. antler design places will pay upwards to 15$ a pound. auctions are the way to go though. i did ebay for a while but you just dont get the moneys worth on there.... then packing those things to ship is no cheap nor easy task.

    Lol I knew I could get more but he was a good friend. I wanted to go look for moose or whiteys this weekend but our weather is not permitting.. Haha. I've never done the auction route... Usually sell them to the horn buyer for $10 a pound. Hope you find some tomorrow!

    She's a black lab, a little over a year old. I hope OH doesn't get mad at me, but when she was learning to find them, I'd yell "Go find a horn!" I guess she's not smart enough to know the difference.
