Default Deer antlers

Anyone had luck giving these to their dogs.
Sam is chewing through everything at a fast pace, and thought I would try these. Any one have a dog that didn't like them? Don't want to spend too much moolah.

Mine liked the deer but really prefer the elk antlers. I get them from Montana Antler Supply. They are on FB. They are huge and not to expensive. My dogs adore them!

My boy likes them and I buy them off and on.

I'm careful with the ones I buy...there was one that was hard like ceramic and I tossed it...it's the only way I can explain it. Always make sure they are ones that nothing has been done to them. I only give chews when I'm able to keep an eye on him.

Ours enjoyed the antlers we got, and they lasted for a while.

I can't remember if they were elk or deer.

Where we live, on five acres, trees and fields with plenty of deer, in all my years I never have come across antlers.
We have a couple of coyote around here, maybe they get them first.
You are lucky you find them for free. Anxious for Sam to try one.

I have never came across any either on our property or even out hiking. The little critters do snatch them up quickly...they are full of vitamins and minerals.

Hoofs are cheap. Kylie loves them and hasn't been able to demolish one yet.

we run a cattle ranch in the cypress hills in saskatchewan we pick up the antlers mainly because they wreck the tractor tires, when I saw the price of them in the stores I realized i'm sitting on a gold mine lol
