    I see there has been a big argument on here regarding the antlers and horns subject.
    Yes the correct term is antlers however has anybody stopped and researched the over 10 definitions in the American English language of horns?
    One clearly says bone protruding from an animals heads. Sticking out or projecting.
    Which in terms makes antlers a type of horn. Hints the fact that the definition of antler is one of the branched HORNS on the head of an adult (usually male) deer, which are made of bone and are grown and cast off annually.
    Yes, the definition of antlers says horns. Which means one is not incorrect for saying it either way. That is unless you call a true horn an antler.

    No I'm pretty sure it's horns. You can move on and try to correct somebody else who won't school you. Move along.
