How to repair chewed deer antler tines

Ok, so I had a skull outside to dry out and for the bugs help clean it off. I guess a darn squirrel found it and chewed the G2 clear off the rack. What can I use to rebuild the tine? I don't believe in recreations but I want my rack back to its original form.

Thanks for any help you could give me.

Shoot, I ain't no antler reconstruction guy but it sounds like you may need to find some matching antler and do a graft of some nature. BTW, I'd have a serious talk with Mr. Squirrel who apparently has no respect for other foks valuables.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

You can rebuild it out of Magic Sculpt. Then you will have to paint it.
