Jim Phillips, 59, has been hunting shed antlers Montana public lands for the past 50 years. This Three Forks native’s phenomenal shed antler collection comprises some 14,500 sheds displayed from floor to ceiling—inside a 30 x 64-foot building he constructed specifically for its display. And, yes, he personally found every one.
dream house! i have plan:
le plan- befriend this man. get on this mans will. wait for him to die and take all the antlers.
Except a lot of these aren’t “sheds” they’re attached to the skullplate of the deer, there are even a few actual skulls in there I can see. I mean yeah it’s possible to find them naturally dead (or snag them from roadkill dumping sites) but they aren’t “shed antlers.” You don’t shed your skull the way you shed hair, unless you think a buck grows a new head every season.
I couldn’t have this room in my house. I’d trip over one and impale myself on the next 3476 of them.
I have done this. And I only had ONE freakin’ elk skull in the room. I tripped on one antler and impaled my shin on the other. I couldn’t have a room like this in my house. I’d probably die. If not from horrible injuries, then certainly from happiness.
