We were in Crossville for a funeral today, and on the way home - stopped by a thrift store and bought this for $5.99:









I haven't put the tape on them yet, but I estimate them in the neighborhood of 140". This is the closest I'll probably ever get to taking a buck of this caliber!!! LOL!

I checked with TWRA to make sure it is legal to buy antlers at a thrift store. I was told it is, as long as they aren't in velvet.

Why would it be illegal to buy them if they was in velvet?

Probably something to do with the market for herbal medicine. Bear gall bladders also come to mind.

And then there's major league sports.

That rack was probably someone's pride and joy. I wonder what kind of long, sad story resulted in its being sold in a thrift shop for $5.99. It's good that it ended up in the hands of someone who appreciates it.
