    Congrats on a cool find! Pretty glim reminder of how life can be for wild animals. I am sure you could find a buyer fairly quick, although I would encourage you not to do so. Granted you didn’t harvest them, but racks like that don’t come around very often especially locked together and just having them around would be pretty cool. Plus it would be proof to a really cool story for years to come. Hold on to them, you will be happy you did. Figure out another way to purchase the bow. if that is not in the deck of cards then contact Circle M Auctions they always of an auction specifically for antlers.

    Welcome to the site, don’t be stranger. There are a lot of things to learn and not to learn as well from the guys on here.

    I know, I am contemplating what to do. But I really do need the money. I have a job and all but I have some pretty expensive hobbies. But thanks man

    Don’t sell them, you will regret it when you are old and grumpy like half this crowd 😯 – money will come and go in life, think long term.

    I need money too, and I wouldn’t sell them! you’ll probably never ever see something like that again!

    About 10-12 years ago, I stumbled upon 2 deer that were locked, while I was pheasant hunting. 1 was dead and had been dead for a long time and the other still alive (don’t know how). We tried separating them, and during that, broke a tine off of the live deer, which allowed them to easily come apart. I didn’t bother cutting the head off the other because it was so rotten and stunk so bad. Now today, 10 years later, i wish i would have cut the head off and dealt with the stink for a few hours/days and had it as a story to tell. All i have to show is the small tine that broke off (about 3″ long). And they were both big deer! not quite as big as yours, but they weren’t small either!

    That had to smell really bad. Cool find.

    What would something like this bring in? You are a pretty young dude unless you need the money to eat you really don’t need the money, lol.

    I’m of the thought sell them. A cool memory for sure, but you have the pics. Cool memory or not, I have never had much attachment to a rack I didn’t harvest myself, and I have found some cool ones over the years.

    IMO you can make your own outdoor memories from the ‘profit’ of this outdoor memory. Maybe you will be able to purchase a new muzzleloader or something with the funds from your sold racks, and with said gun shoot your personal best deer ever. Definitely a good deal there. If you sell it be smart about it, you’ll be kicking yourself if you sell them for gas money and movie tickets

    The “Greenbrier Bucks”. Good to hear that you were able to get a salvage tag. Sure you want top sell them? You will never have a trophy prize like this again.

    I didn’t mean to sound like downer on this. My only point was what others have said. What you have found is very cool, and no, you will most likely never find something like this again. MOST shed hunters nev even find a shed as large as these, let alone a set of them, let alone two nice bucks locked together. Sure you have pics, but heck now we all do, too, so what’s so special about that? Pics of deer on here area dime a dozen. In my humble opinion you will absolutely regret selling what you have found. A good find for sure and congrats on that. Don’t sell them. B)

    On the other hand, maybe you don’t deer hunt or care about antlers. In that case more power to you. Sell them to someone who would enjoy them.

    Im attempting to get in to Deer hunting. Im very interested in archery, thats a big motivator in selling them is buying all the gear, and hopefully someday I can fill a wall of mounts that I shot, although they probably will never come close to this.
