Antler Wagon 9x12

  Some friends of mine owned a ranch in northern Arizona.  When they were out checking their cows in the winter, they would pick up shed mule deer antlers and as they rode back into the yard they would toss them onto this old wagon.  Occasionally they sold some to knife makers who would make handles out of them.
