    Default What to do with Sheep Horns?

    A friend and I were taking about a 16 mile stroll through the white mountains and we found a Dall Sheep Skull. No carcass or anything. Just the skull without the lower jaw. Looks like it had been there for a few years. We picked up the skull and the horns fell off but are individually intact. Got any ideas I what I could do with it? I lugged it all the way back to the jeep and now what to do something special with it, but do not have any ideas. We split the horns between us so I only have 1 to work with. Thanks for the ideas.

    There are people who do carvings on them around here. I would check into that. I know one other forum member made a lamp out of one that was really neat. I can't remember who that was, but you may be able to find it if you do a search.

    Make a project. I did a lamp but that means you gotta go get the other horn back from your buddy.

    I heard all horns have to be check by fish and game, even if found. Does anyone know if this is true?

    My question was out of curiosity and it got the better of me. So per fish and game...no we do not have to report natural kill horns, they would like for us to bring them by for measurement for biological information, but not required. FYI if any one else wanted to know.

    Have an artist carve something Alaskan on them and give half to each daughter for a house warming gift.
