How to Convince your Wife to Let you Hang your Antlers in the House

You’ve hunted the magnificent deer. You’ve got these amazing antlers that you’ve mounted and can’t wait to hang up in the middle of the living room because you’re so proud of your accomplishment.  Only, you have to get past your wife to hang them up.  Maybe she won’t notice if you hang them up while she’s gone to spin class.  WRONG.  She will notice, my friend. And she will not let you put your antler trophy up on the wall. But if  you’re sneaky, you can get a little antlers in your house. Here are some acceptable ways to get antler trophies in your house:

1. Frame it.  Get a great picture frame and frame your mount, so at least you still get to show your trophy off.

2. Make them into a magazine rack. This can go in the living room and the bathroom. There should be no complaints on a piece like this.

3.Make it into a Wine Rack.  You know she loves wine. Just make sure you have it filled with her favorite before you put this addition into the house. You’re a shoe in with this one.

4.Mirror, mirror on the wall. Who’s the fairest of them all? Your wife, of course.  If you want to get any of your antler decor in the house, then this is a great addition.  Women love looking at themselves in the mirror.  They’ll be too blinded by their own beauty to notice the antlers on the mirror.

5. Candle Holders.  Lure her in with the promise of a romantical dinner by candle light.

And if these tricks don’t work, make sure you have a garage to hang your antler mounts. Good luck, fellas.

Antler Table Lamp

Antlers are a great way to add rustic decor to any room.  Antler Table LampThis Faux Whitetail Three Antler Table Lamp is a great example of that. Whether you’re putting the finishing touches on a full out cabin decor style room, or you just want to add a touch of rustic beauty, this antler table lamp is perfect.

A trio of replica Whitetail Antlers are delicately perched atop one another, and their Genuine Rawhide Shade illuminates the room with a cozy glow. All the wiring for this exquisite lamp is internal and UL Approved, as to not detract from its natural beauty. Each individual horn is unique and hand-finished for an authentic look- and because these horns are replicas, it costs only a fraction of what the real thing costs! Each lamp is unique and has been individually hand finished to achieve an authentic natural look. Elk and Whitetail antlers were originally collected from the high, rugged mountains of Utah and Wyoming, becoming the basis for resin reproductions. Meticulous care is taken with every horn. Each has been hand-stained and rubbed to achieve the authentic look of natural horn. They are then expertly layered into striking designs, creating a wildlife ambience with the natural look of real antlers.

Dimensions: 15″ W x 26″ T Incandescent Light Bulb Recommended due to the Raw Hide Shade – Max 60W Bulb

So if you’re looking to capture the Beauty of Nature in you own Rustic Home, an Antler table lamp will do the trick.

Big Game Antlers- a quick guide…

Antlers are awesome- from the wide antlers of Bull Moose, to the delicate branchlike growths of Caribou, no two are alike.  But can you tell the difference? Some people have a hard time remembering the difference between various types of antlers and their owners. Here’s a good way to remember- I use it all the time to teach my friends and family.

“Silent Waters” by John Seerey-Lester

Spread out your hands real wide and stick your thumbs on your temples, with you palms facing upward. That’s a Moose- with PALMATE antlers.

“On The Move” by George LaVanish

Now, move your outstretched hands to the top of your head, resting your wrists on the top of you head and your thumbs facing back. Curl your fingers like you’re holding a ball. That’s a Deer with their basket-like antler structure.

Whitetails and Mule Deer have Different antler structures-Whitetails have a single beam that arches over their head like a crown,whereas Muley’s branch upwards like a tree.

“Indian Summer” by Carl Brenders
Now, keep your hands spread wide and put your elbows against your ears. This resembles the single beam of Elk antlers that go back from the head and over the back. Your forearms represent the beam that the points extend from.

Remember these positions and you’ll be able to recall which animal owns which antlers- not to mention a neat way to teach folks about Big Game,  in a fashion they’ll never forget!
