what do you do with the teeth  ??? 

 (Image hidden from quote, click to view.)
The canine teeth from my 2012 Elk showing extensive wear rings.  They are also called "ivories", but they are not ivory.

One of mine on the left and Marty's on the right made into pendants.  The worn portion is also sometimes sliced off and set into a ring.
what do you do with the teeth  ???

To be totally honest....I personally have no idea, but these guys save them like they are gold. The one explanation that I've heard was for making jewelry.
They call them "Elk Ivory" or "eye teeth" here and I think there are only two of them, but I'm not positive on that.

thanks ;D  they look cool with the rings   forgot to say congrats on your elk  :)
