Or the good old favourite, Craft Supplies (look in Walking Sticks).
The web page and paper catalogue don't specify the origin, but I had an e-mail stating it to be Scottish.

Try looking for your nearest Deer Farm and buy direct. Usually better around March - May when the antlers drop off.

Good links Mirage :biggthump
Finding sheds in cruddy conditions like the highlands isn't easy, the deer eat the sheds to supplement their diet. Deer in deer parks don't bother, they get much tastier snacks containing all their vitamins and minerals .......
Craft supplies has coronets for a tenner.
do a quick search on "stag" ;)
