Default Good online sites for deer antlers?

Seeing as my mom was thoroughly disgusted by Cali's bully sticks, I figured maybe deer antlers would be a better option. So, I was just wondering if anyone knew of any good sites that sold them for a decent price.

Thanks!

I think mypetcarnivore.com sells them. Hare Today may as well.

Ok so I'm dumb on this subject and was wondering if someone could answer this.

I've seen people suggest them but aren't they hard?

I think Yoshi likes the almost tough beef jerky style of bully sticks and I don't know if I'd be able to convince her to just start chewing on something that doesn't give.

Just a note before anyone thinks I'm dumb lol. I have never touched or messed with a deer antler. I know I can get some if I wanted but when I hear antler I just think 'super hard'.

Is she disgusted by the odor of bully sticks or just knowing which part of the cow they are? :P True Chews bully sticks are washed well and don't have any odor.

A deer antler is harder than a raw bone, softer than a cooked bone. It also depends on the antler. Some are more dense, and some are more "spongy." I go for the dense ones because otherwise Gavroche kills them in no time.

I get mine from my trainer for $5 for a good sized piece or $10 for a quite large piece. I generally use the $5 pieces. Check if there are any independent distributors, hunters, etc because everyone else marks them up like mad. The pet store here sells them for around $5+ an ounce.
