100-plus antlers to decorate AK community center

Posted: Sunday, May 02, 2010

FAIRBANKS - More than 100 antlers from moose and caribou will soon be stacked and screwed together to decorate an entry-way at a Fairbanks community center.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports that managers at the Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitors Center, which houses several organizations, decided to decorate a now-bare arch near the entrance.

Antlers are flying in from the region, with the largest rack being 65 inches wide. It came from a 14-year-old teenager from Nikolai, who bagged the prize in his first hunt.

Many people sending their antlers are asking for their names, village or date of the hunt to be engraved on the antlers.
