people make them with all kind of things - hay bales, pieces of wire fence, old fallen logs, etc. it's been suggested though that knocking off antlers before they are ready can damage the pedicles and the deer will always grow a funny rack after that. My thinking, and I don't have anything to back this, but what I would do is put corn up against a big log so the deer must bump his rack against the log to eat corn. That way, in theory, the antlers would only come off if they were ready and there would be no bungees or fence wires to "snag" off the antlers.Hunter 257W said:Have any of you tried one of these? I saw this a few eyars ago and just never got around to trying it.
The price is very steep but if you can weld, it wouldn't be nearly so expensive to throw somthing together with a bucket in the bottom for corn and a frame to hold rubber bungees the bucks could poke their heads through. There's still time to put one together this year in fact.
