What type of antlers excite you?

Unread postby publiclandhunter » Wed Jun 30, 2010 1:45 am

I know everyone has their favorite type of antler configuration and characteristics that they dream of. For me, I like the northwoods dark-horned non-typicals with palmation, stickers, knurled bases and exceptional mass - maybe a dropper thrown in. Although a typical looks very classy, I prefer the "trash" and mass! How about you?

Big ones. :D I like them all, but I do like the dark stained best. Almost black for a non typical looks really cool. I will take a 200" typical over a 260" non typical though.

I particuarly enjoy the sight of big antlers(any configuration) on public access hunting land.

Add out of state and at an area I am fairly unfarmaliar with and the enjoyment grows. :mrgreen:

Surprise me... I like the uniqueness of every set of antlers.
If I had to choose it would be a non-typical. I love the freaks.

I like heavy horned typicals with long tines. Even preferably if they aren't super wide. It just makes to make the rack seem so much more massive and the tines longer when there is a narrower spread.

No antlers, but pretty freaky.

I really get excited about a buck with lots of mass like you see in some of those huge Canadian bucks.
