I think you have a shed form a stag or cactus buck. Contrary to popular thought bucks with messed up testosterone do shed there antlers and often regrow another set. Sheds from these buck do not have the normal button on the base. Often the base is hollow like the one you found. Yours is a very extreme example and it looks like and animal could have chewed on it a bit. It is also common for sheds from these bucks to has remnants of velvet too.
Nice looking antler.
I have never heard of that. Thanks!

6.5 miles yesterday into a spot where I picked up close to a dozen antlers last year. Nothing to show for it except a bunch of old trash. I’m beginning to think I’ve lost my shed “search image” this spring

Find the shed. Lol.
I took this from the road walking back from Saturday‘s hike. About 10,000 side by sides have passed by here and at least half that many 4X4s since it was shed. I walked by about 20 yards on the other side a couple weeks ago. In my defense I was coming back after hiking all day and the sun would have been right in my eyes. But still… I hit the road about 1/4 mile from where I was parked and was walking back. I happen to glance over as the sun was reflecting off it. Total fluke.
