Anyone know what the law says about selling deer antlers and deer sheds? I tried to google but the tpwd site is “under revision”.

Perfectly legal, so long as the antlers aren't from a poached deer.

PetSmart here in Temple sells about a 4" long piece of it for around $10 for chew toys.

Over the years for making calls, I have bought a bunch of antler.

I still don't understand the reasoning as to why it's against the law to sell migratory birds.

It’s an outdated law, for sure. We have farming for that now

My two dogs will chew them down to a nub. They're usually gone in a couple days. But I refuse to pay for them.

They get 10-18 dollars for a 6 inch piece cut in half length wise in the pet stores.

My dogs will devour them.

I sell antlers all the time for about $11-14 per pound. Generally as long as they dont have cracks or splits they can bring that amount.
