Curious as I read it is illegal to sell deer antlers in Alabama.

Can one legally trade deer antlers for other items?

Is there a license to enable one to do so?

If an Alabama resident buys a deer antler from another Alabama party, is the buyer at risk for any legal punishment?

How does one purchase deer antlers to use as scales for knives?


God Bless,
David B.

Seriously though, ignorance doesn't hold up in law.

Curious as to the reasons hides and hooves may be sold, but not antlers.

This is only a guess, but I think it is to discourage poaching. If the price of antlers increase, there will be people willing to do anything to make that money.

What is there to discourage the hides and hooves, since those may be sold?

Every deer has hooves. Few have nice racks. It's like comparing pennies to silver dollars.

there are people that buy them to make oriental medicine, and also body building, the fresher the higher price paid. velvet preferred. don't support this. it wont do anything good for deer here if the buyers start coming here.

So, according to my interpretation, I can make knife scales out of the antlers from the deer I harvest(ed) and sell them.

Are you looking to buy some or have some you are looking to get rid of. To make a set of knife scales take a pretty large diameter set of antlers. Most scales come from Sambar stag, elk or moose for that reason. A hidden tang knife is a different story.
