Bill Lancaster of Payette brought a truckload of about 5,000 pounds of elk and deer antlers through Grangeville last Thursday, April 10. Lancaster said he has been into horn buying for “12 or 13 years” and has purchased horns in every western state where it is legal to do so. After starting out as an antler hunter, he saw a business opportunity in buying. “I got into collecting, then one thing led to another,” he said. “Now it’s what I do for a living.” He declined to talk about prices. “I don’t want to tell my competitors how much I’m paying,” he said. Grangeville residents pegged the going rate at about $10-$12 per pound.
