About the Banner #48

The image was a detail of a photo I took about a year ago at the National Bison Range in western Montana, of my nephew Harry in front of a stack of elk antlers collected on the reserve.

    I love the “About the Banner” posts. You should have an “About the Banner” contest. Not sure what you’d give as a prize. Thanks for all the great and well-rounded news items.

    I guess this really shows the divide between people who grew up in, say, the American West and those who didn’t. It never occurred to me that it was anything but antlers.

    You still haven’t explained, as far as I can tell, the banner of what I think was a kid reading a book.

    Hey Paul… there is a link titled “about the banner” in the top left corner of the page that will show you all of the banners and what they were. 😉

    @Paul R: I grew up in the capital city of a country in Europe, never seen a real live elk… But I immediately guessed it was antlers… It’s not a matter of where you live but a matter of what you know.

    @Charles: I agree. I grew up in Washington, DC, which has deer but you rarely see antlers. But I have traveled, and antler piles aren’t all that rare.
