Hoping for an ID for this unusual artifact...

Deep East Texas, TX(Zone 8a)

I had a friend give me this a couple of months ago. He said he found it at a garage sale and paid a couple dollars for it. He just knew I would like it and he was right!

I have shown it to many folks and have had lots of guesses but I would love to know what it is. Perhaps then I can isolate when it was made.

It is carved from an antler.
