Default Deer antlers?

I've seen places advertising the deer and elk antlers. We have an elk we purchased and jasmine loves it.
I was wondering if real deer like straight from the deer antlers are ok to give or would they splinter?
My brother just got a 4 pt and he was just going to toss the antlers and I was wondering if it would be safe to give straight from the deer

The antlers you buy are straight from the animal. I would maybe wash it but thats it.

How about the ones you find that have been shed? I have box full, but I'm sure some are 5-7 years old.

We had that discussion at training a while back and some guys said that the antlers would get harder with age....I don't know if that is true or not.
I like this site, & subscribe to its page on fb:

If you read the elk antlers packaging I think it says they have fallen naturally (shed) if they can be eaten years later, IDK. Is there a use by date on the elk antlers?

The antlers seem to be so hard. Is there any danger that the dogs will damage their teeth on them?

Anybody know a reasonable source for them online? At my local store, I pay about $9 for a 8-10" piece of elk antler.
