I found this buck dead several years ago. Too far gone to get all the way down to the bases and really, not much of a base. So I just sawed them off, tried not to gag, and forgot them in a box in the closet. I finally decided I needed a set of rattling antlers. I evened up the cut bases with a belt sander (smells like burning hair btw) and drilled out the pith. They are epoxied into the handles with a 1/4” dia piece of all thread. I’ve never done much rattling, but I can do it in style now!
