    i've thought about it before. the only thing is your going to want to hack off those brau(braw, sp?) tines. go for it. you wont pay any attention to it once you kill a couple bigger ones and they will mean just as much everywhere you take them and you can show them to everyone you hunt with

    Now that I see your buck, I think you should make them into rattling horns... They are a great size for it... Cut the brow tines off, and rattle like crazy. Being he isn't a giant, some monster buck may think some smaller bucks are fighting and wants to take them on! Go for it, and then when people ask about your horns, you have a great story!

    What was the error message? disk not found, ntldr is missing, etc.

    I run a mac - wasn't giving any specific message other than their triangle with the ! in it. I tried reseting PRAM, batter pulls, everything that I could find to fix it. Ended up just getting a new HD off evil-bay loaded up Snow leopard again and called it a day. Had to also replace my power cord - that was a timebomb waiting to go off anyway. We fostered a lab pup for 1 day and the little bastich chewed up the cord, so I had it taped up - it eventually shorted out.

    That cord being a problem I believe has my battery jacked up too - comp won't stay on very long unless it is plugged in, even at high 90s % life. Battery has very few load cycles on it also - so that probably is part of the issue too since it has been plugged in for the majority of it's life.

    Well, I finally did it. Went out with my bone saw and cut the antler off the cap. Couldn't bring myself to take the brow tines off, so they are still there for now. So far they aren't getting in the way and I'm really liking the sound I am getting with these antlers. Really looking forward to getting out with them this fall and seeing what I might be able to bring in I strung them up with the same paracord colors I am using for my sling and release strap. I'll get a picture of them tomorrow and post.

    Cool. I'm looking forward to seeing a pic of it. Try Rattling in a Buck on the ground during the rut. It's a rush when a Buck charges in mad crazy snort and wheezing. I've had it happen a couple of times. It's a rush. One thing I've learned from Rattling Muley's (Might differ from Whitetails). Don't over use it.

    I'm like you, could'nt have cut the brow tines off either, think that it would change the tonal quality of the antlers, and sound unnatural.

    Thread is now valid to the title.
