    Just some background I grew up my whole life in the house that is on this property and still our family still owns it so I dig holes time to time lol (sometimes too much) ..... I don't deer hunt and neither does the neighbors , and I have never found any dead deer or bones in the yard ... but I guess it's one of those things just won't know without some proof of some kind lol ..

    First thing that popped into my head too. Interesting that if it is, the slot is 90 degrees from what you would think of for a knife haft. Seems like it would be a dandy handle for a hafted scraper. If so, I bet that woman was the envy of her friends! I wonder which anniversary they considered to be "Antler".

    Don't dismiss it as a chew toy. I think it was made to take/haft a tool.

    Yeah, I also felt it was a handle when I saw it. The association with the stone w/ use wear and points nearby helps seal the deal. Great find.

    Could we see the other end? It would be interesting to see if there are break marks or evidence of cutting or working to shape. Very interesting piece and thanks for the shots of the points and hard stone. Is there any evidence of discoloration or residue in the hafting area?
    I am hoping somebody that has more familiarity with bone artifacts chimes in. If it is the real deal, it must of been for a specific job imo. I have made many knives with antler handles and have never purposely put the haft zone at that angle.
