    Antler DIY Toggles/Whoopies

    Made these today, I think Deer Antler will be fine for the toggles. I also cut out a section of antler to make my stops on my Whoopie Slings. Hope you like them.

    Antlers should work fine. My son and I have been using them on our DIY hammocks and tarps for a while now without any problems. It's another way to use as much as we can from the deer we harvest. Plus, they look cool.

    I think that those will not work out at all. In order to protect you from potential danger, I will PM you my address so you can send them to me for proper disposal! Looks Awesome, gonna dig out my sheds!

    Those toggles are awesome!

    Hmmm, I see a new item being added to the inventory of some opportunistic vendor.

    glad you like them. After making my first whoopie sling (and forgetting the stopper bead) and almost losing the slide, I decided to buy some beads. Used a coke tab for the second one. Guess Gram weenies would like the tab.
    Made my second set today and it just hit me to use antler for the stopper bead, then i got to thinking about toggles......why not.
    I will just tie them off to my tree straps so they will always be ready.
    I'm always looking for ways to use antlers
