NEVER BOIL ANTLERS! Boiling removes the natural tannic acid from the tree bark that bucks used to remove their velvet. Tannic acid gives the antlers color and depth. You will end up with white antlers...natural are more attractive and natural.

NEVER MOUNT ANTLERS! I tried once and once I'd recovered I vowed, now matter how horny I get, mounting antlers is just too far - I now just keep to what I know which is mounting my left hand whilst vigourosly cracking one off with my right hand - it's much more hygenic and doesn't necessitate the need for a Deer's head.
