$19,000 Bucks for a Buck’s Sheds?

An Iowa-based Deer Show
and Auction
is pulling in some serious bucks ($) by selling large shed antlers.
The pair shown below, according to the Web site, sold for $19,000. The site
doesn’t say either way, but many believe these antlers came from farm-raised
whitetail. Given the potential value of sheds in the auction market, could shed
antler hunting find renewed interest — and what about the implications for states
with laws prohibiting the sale of antlers?

    these sheds were WILD found sheds in illinois
    NOT pen raised deer
    although there is vallue in pen raised sheds
    & they are LEGAL to sell in iowa & for that matter most states
    it is in all cases the buyers responsibility to know thier home state laws regaurding the sale & possession of antlers
    The Dubuque Iowa Whitetail Classic is my show
    i know where those sheds came from & i know where they went
    & yes they did bring $19,000
    I have it on video filmed by Pat Reeve’s film crew
    e mail me at circlem@q.com & i will send you a coppy of the video
