Deer Antlers - Deer Horn Tree

It's next to a taxidermy shop for deer. Antlers are intertwined to form a large tree -- cone shaped -- in front of the shop. Cute and morbid at same time! Glad we stopped. Much needed break and entertainment.

Very underwhelming! Bits of tree or green plant are growing around some of the antlers. Re-bar can be seen behind the old antlers. Still, we took our picture in front of the tree.

Deer Horn Tree

The Deer Horn Tree was created in 1968 by the Kimble Business and Professional Women's Club in Junction, which has one of the state's more popular areas for hunting. It is about 12 feet high, with deer antlers all over the tree. It looks like a Christmas tree, and during the holidays an electric star is placed on top. It is estimated that the county's whitetail deer population is one animal for every 7.5 acres of land.
