53-Year Shed Antler Collection

Postby Ben Sobieck » Fri Jan 14, 2011 11:31 am

The Antler Man of AntlerMan.com is more than deserving of the name. Since 1958, Montana antler addict James Phillips worked to fill the 30' x 64' "Jim's Horn House" with as many deer sheds as he could find, as well as those from other species.

James says he's never bought a single antler. Each of the more than 15,000 antlers was found through a love of shed hunting. He's driven by the rush he gets from finding sheds, not profit (although he sold some to put his children through college).

Here's a look at the "Horn House" today:

Wow.  Looks like it could be a great venue for a SAW movie!

That's so cool. Antlers are the greatest. And i've found like 4 or 5 sheds my entire life. Clearly i'm doing something wrong.

Shed hunting is a really fun thing to do in the spring before the fishing gets really good.
If you can find it you can kill it.
