Jim Phillips, 59, has been hunting shed antlers Montana public lands for the past 50 years. This Three Forks native’s phenomenal shed antler collection comprises some 14,500 sheds displayed from floor to ceiling—inside a 30 x 64-foot building he constructed specifically for its display. And, yes, he personally found every one.
dream house! i have plan:
le plan- befriend this man. get on this mans will. wait for him to die and take all the antlers.
Except a lot of these aren’t “sheds” they’re attached to the skullplate of the deer, there are even a few actual skulls in there I can see. I mean yeah it’s possible to find them naturally dead (or snag them from roadkill dumping sites) but they aren’t “shed antlers.” You don’t shed your skull the way you shed hair, unless you think a buck grows a new head every season.
Before the production of Princess Mononoke, a project titled Boro, the Caterpillar was considered for a feature release. The producer, Toshio Suzuki, noted that Miyazaki “is getting old” and a chance of doing an action film in the future would be none. So Suzuki pursued Miyazaki to initiate the Princess Mononoke project. A few years later, a story of a small creature living in a vast world still lingered in Miyazaki’s imagination. Thus, he written and directed a fifteen-minute short titled Mizugumo Monmon (Water Spider Monmon); a diving bell spider who fell in love with a water strider.
