Several years ago maybe 15, there was some rednecks down here in Southeast OK. They were pen raising elk, de-horning or de-antlering (we already had that discussion in another post!) velvet bulls and sending the racks over seas. They got busted & got in pretty big trouble. The rumor at the time was they were making medicine out of it. Suposedly sold for $400-$600 US dollars an ounce on black market.
