Fixing those rattling antlers

Have a set of deer antlers and you want to try antler ratting? First, remove the antlers from the scull or scull cap. Cut off the brow tines, if it has them. Then drill a small hole near the base of the antlers. Take a small rope, run it through the holes and tie at both ends to make a neck loop. If you don't want to drill holes, leave the flare at the base of the antlers and use a slip type note around the antler bases. Be sure to sand any sharp points or edges. Before your go into the field, spray your antlers and rope with a scent neutralizer. To avoid self-inflicted hand damage always wear gloves while rattling antlers.
