Yeah that Red Stag antlers would really lend itself to nature hanging off of it

It certainly would be nice to see the prehistoric Irish elk (Megaloceros giganteus). It probably has the largest antlers of all deer, but proportionate to its size the caribou or reindeer has relatively larger antlers. And neither is it the largest deer of all times - the prehistoric moose (Cervalces latifrons) is even larger. If Chris is interested in doing an Irish elk, this article may help: The Life Appearance of the Giant Deer Megaloceros. The closest living deer relative to the Irish elk is the Fallow deer (Dama dama) so like the Fallow deer it probably has an 'Adam's apple'. Also prehistoric cave paintings suggest so. The following pictures are taken from the above article by Darren Naish:

And this is a Fallow deer (Note the 'Adam's apple')
