Moose and caribou shed their antlers annually.
The tines and beams are the hardest, longest lasting cut from a moose antler. These are great for any type dog esspecially for aggresive chewers.
The brow palm and usually about 1/3 of the way up the main palm are still very solid. They are just as hard as the tines and beams, just a bit thinner. These are good for most any type dog.
The upper 2/3 of the main palm is typically a bit softer. These cuts are reserved for smaller, older and softer chewing dogs.
The Brow Palm or "Shovel" and Bez are some of the most unique parts of any antler in the world. For that reason these cuts are very popular among carvers and artists. Very few are made into dog chews.
The main beam from the base of "shovel" to where the top palm starts make up the bulk of our caribou chews. They are packed with vitiam rich marrow with a long lasting outer enamel.
The wide part of the top palm is a softer, marrow rich cut. Usually with a thinner enamel. Medium - XLarge dogs usually chew this a bit quicker.
The top palm and rear points "tines" are a harder long lasting chew usually reseved for petite to medium sized dogs and pet rodents. This is due to the size of the cut.
