Montana Antler Craft's Fire Starters

 

While visiting the Georgia Mountain Fair in Hiawassee, Georgia this summer I saw a both with antlers which had been made into different things such as picture frames, fireplace sets and fire starters. Although I spotted the bigger items first, it was the fire starter which really got my attention. I had to investigate further. The booth was operated by Montana Antler Craft. A demonstration of the fire starters was just starting as we walked up. The “kool factor” alone was enough to make me want one, but as a long time camper, and in my younger days a backwoods, backpack camper, I knew that although a lighter is easy there are times when a lighter just wont do the trick.
Life got in the way and prevented us from camping for a while, but one day, after more than a week of rain we hit the woods. Now I have always prided myself in my fire starting ability, but after so much rain I was a little concerned. After gathering up wet kindling (could not find dry) and wet wood we were ready to start the fire. Walking back to my truck to get some dryer lint (yes, I keep a small Ziploc bag of dryer lint in my truck just for times like this) I heard my wife start laughing. Walking back to the campsite I found my wife feeding a small fire. Having never started a fire with anything but a lighter, my wife had used one of our new antler fire starter (we got 2, one medium and a key chain starter) to start the fire....On the first try! These fire starters are amazing!
Although I do not hunt myself, I was raised by a family of deer hunters so I knew that deer shed their antlers every year. I was excited to see such a good use for a naturally occurring product. No deer were harmed in the making of this fire starter.
