    are you looking for scrimshaw type work or having something carved out of the horn/antler itself? i have to track down some contact info but i know someone that does scrimshaw and carves knife handles (orders the blades to make the knife). he is in anchorage. i will try and get that info for you as he doesn't run a small business that is in the yellow pages or anything, but just a hobby that he likes to do.

    Give Tim Herrick a call - he used to live in Soldotna, moved down to Minnesota but still does carving - great artist - I met him last fall.

    i worked with an iron worker in delta junction that carves. his name is J.R. pederson and i think his business is called the horny carver. i seen some of his work and it looks real good. he also does photography and has alot of his pictures up in the trophy lodge in delta junction. sorry i dont have his number and i didnt see a websight but if you get ahold of the trophy lodge in delta junction ill bet he is still there working on the powerplant on greely. i could get it if i made some calls. PM me if you are intrested.

    The real value of Ox horns is for knife handles. You might get a very attractive handle and also be able to sell some of it as well.

    Thumbs up Tom Cooper....

    I just picked up a set of sheep horns I had Tom Cooper carve for me. They are a gift to my 2 daughters. The ram was taken down the Nebesna Road in the "Boyden Hills" many years ago. My father was in his 60's at the time. Tom is an artist who is reliable and takes pride in his work.

    ramhunter,

    Like AlaskaTrueAdventure and Vince said, I carve horn and antler. Here is the link to my web-site http://www.customantlercreations.com

    I've never carved a muskox horn, but done plenty of sheep horns. Here is a pic of a carving I just completed a couple of weeks ago.

    Pass it on, take a child hunting, fishing or trapping.

    TJ, looks like you're a newbie at this
    I'm in the middle (and have been for almost a year) of my first carving on a moose antler. I'll post pics of my progress after I get home so you can laugh!!

    hunt_ak,

    Please post a pic of your carving, I love looking at others work.

    geoff156,

    That carving was $250.00 I don't know what the prices of Mr. Herrick's carvings are. I can tell you that I have seen his carvings in person and they are THE FINEST antler carvings I have ever seen. He is in a class all his own, a true MASTER.

    TJ, How much would you charge to do a carving just like that moose one only with a caribou? I have an antler that is pretty much the same as the one you used... I cut it off of a rack from a Quebec I hunt I did and would like to get it carved for an even better momentum from that hunt. The detail & 3-d look of your work is awesome to say the least. That moose kicks butt!
