Thanks Doc, Floyd, and Greg. Steve, I, too, and looking forward to getting these in a Knife.
I’m not aware of issues with owning/selling red stag here in the states. For a considerable sum of money one can actually hunt imported red stag in the state of Texas. This beam was actually on a table at a flea market.
Sometimes it is best not to ask, or show excitement for an item. Especially if the price is not marked beforehand.
I have some elk sheds as well. This pith on the stag is less dense, but the outer layer is harder to cut than the elk.
