Texas Whitetail Deer Antler Pen – TWDA – This Texas Whitetail Deer Antler Pen is made from antlers shed by Whitetail Deer in South Texas!
White-tailed deer shed their antlers every year prior to the re-growth of new ones. The entire shedding process takes only two to three weeks to complete, and the re-growth phase takes place over the summer up into very early fall. Bucks have antlers throughout spring, summer, and most of the winter, but shed them sometime between January and April (depending upon the animal and latitude), after the rutting season comes to an end. A buck can carry-on without antlers at this time of year because they do not need to fight-off other bucks for territory and does. Deer antlers differ from the hollow horns of cattle in that they comprise solid bone tissue with a honeycombed structure.
This Texas Whitetail Deer Antler Pen is made with a gold .30 caliber cartridge. It is an interesting style of pen! This would make a wonderful gift for a pen enthusiast!
