Little antler repair.

Recommended Posts

I tried my hand at fixing up a set of sheds that I found a couple years ago that the squirrels had their way with. Really tough to match colors but I think they turned out pretty good. 

Before: the right side had several holes chewed into the G2 right below the split, the left side had the top half chewed to a thin sliver remaining and the beam had been worked over pretty good from the G3 to the tip. I didn't add any inches of antler, just basically filled in what the rodents had chewed off...
