  2. 2. photos by Gale Farley F or centuries, Native Americans have used photographing deer, he is probably thinking deer antlers to fashion tools, to craft about them. As a youngster, he constructed the buttons for clothing, or even to create play likeness of a whitetail buck using toothpicks and things for their children. In modern times, those who saw it thought it was an amazing craftsmen turn deer and elk antlers into belt creation for a person in his early teens. buckles, knife handles, chandeliers, and a plethora of craft items. WHAT IS A “SHED?” It took Utica artist Tom Yacovella years to turn his passion for white-tailed deer and his After the mating season in November, a hetero-geneous collection of shed antlers into a whitetail buck’s testosterone level decreases one-of-a-kind work of art—but all indications are and ultimately, its antlers fall off. This that he’s made a lasting impression. phenomenon of antler shedding begins as WHITE-TAIL ENTHUSIAST To say wildlife artist Yacovella has an interest in deer and deer antlers would be an understatement. Yacovella is the quintessential outdoorsman. When he isn’t painting or Yacovella spent two months working on the head section alone.

The “sheds” lie where the bucks lost them and while mice or other rodents may quickly consume them, those who know where to look can often find them. In 1952, while hiking in the Adirondacks, Yacovella discovered a shed deer antler. This was the first of more than 300 he’s discovered since then.

Yacovella concentrates his searches in known deer “yards”—areas where white-tails concentrate around a IDEA IS BORN food source in an effort to survive the harshness of win- ter. Yacovella begins his annual search by looking for In early 2001, Yacovella began thinking about what to do with the massive pile of antlers he had accumulated. He remembered the deer sculpture he had constructed out of toothpicks almost fifty years earlier, and the idea to sculpt a life-sized, mature, white-tail buck using his antlers was hatched. Yacovella usually works in watercolors and acrylics so at first, he was apprehensive that a three-dimensional sculpture might prove to be overly challenging. Nevertheless, he was determined to use his knowledge of deer and deer anatomy, along with his artistic ability, to create Tribute to the White- tail©. As he began the project, Yacovella looked at each antler as a piece of a puzzle. To retain the The tail and ears were created using antlers with fine tines.
