Locked Moose Antlers
A friend of mine found a set of locked antlers that are in good shape, no rodents chewed on them and still brown. Is there a market for them? One is a 62" and I think the other is 56".
This guy is a friend of a friend and I think he buys. Give him a call.
That would be such a cool find! I dream of the day I stumble on something like that!

In Alaska you can NOT sell a moose antler if it is still atatched to the skull plate.
If you cut all 4 antlers off of the skull plates you will not any longer have a natural locked antler.
Plus each antler would have to be removable or put back on like that .
IT Would be a pain in the butt to do.

RJ - I was under the impression that the law you're citing applies to skulls taken by hunters, not those picked up in the woods that died of natural causes. Am I wrong here?
That law aplies to ALL Antlers that are attatched to the skull.
Pickups or legal harvest.
By the way the troopers look at it , they are still a TROPHY.
Same with Sheep. The horns MUST BE REMOVED from the skull plates before they can be sold. Even if they have already been removed & bondoed back on.
The Skull can not be sold attatched.
This eliminates the TROPHY designation.
Its more of a pain than most people think.
I have a Repro Sheep 44 inches , the skull is also reproed, Both in plastic.
I can sell the Plastic horn caps, & I can sell the Plastic skull, but I can NOT sell the skull attatched to the horn caps, even though the whole thing is plastic.
That is rediculous.
