I know elk farmers do and have been getting $30-$35/lb. I don't know anyone who has harvested velvet antler from deer (whitetail)...but would be interested to hear what the market would be for it. I think most deer velvet antler you see is from Red Deer?

sorry I should have mentioned it was specific to red deer, I know how much its worth, I just don't know how much each deer would produce, how it is harvested and how it is stored and moved

Go to youtube and search antler velvet collection. Very interesting. Cut then freeze dried and shipped out to processing.
