You may well find deer antlers beautiful, but how much do you think about them—a little or a lot?
In this episode of Wildlife Matters, the Masked Biologist talks about the importance of antlers.
Antlers are extremely important. They are important to deer, to be certain, but they are important to hunters as well. If you took someone who knew absolutely nothing about deer or deer hunting and asked them to study deer and the people who hunt them, there is a fair chance they would come to the conclusion that the antler is the primary goal of the harvest.
