Moose antlers

Alces alces


This is a young moose antler. Alot of times if moose get into a scurmish they will fight (as most large mammals) and if the moose is still young, deer and i'm sure goats also. they will lose or break an antler. This is one of those particular antlers.

I'd love to see them in the wild. Amazing shapes they make - good one Corey.

This isn't my trophy, it's on the outside of a building on highway 17 north heading towards thunderbay.

These are found on many store fronts and houses outside here in the north.
But I will remove it as asked.
The hunting laws in northern ontario are extremely strict so we have been fortunate enough to have never seen such sights.

Hi Corey. This spotting, although impressive from a hunters perspective, probably isn't right for Project Noah. We have a policy to not allow trophy shots because, as you could imagine, there are some pretty ugly ones out there. And your shot of just the antlers (no skull or mount) on the boards sort of already covers the subject. I recommend you remove this mounted set and put more info on moose into your other ones. Thanks for understanding and keep up the good works.
