    Currently, Moose have the largest antlers in the deer family averaging 150 cm in length. These antlers can weigh anywhere from 5 to 35 pounds and have up to 30 points. However, they do not have the largest antlers in the history of the deer family. The Irish Elk, now extinct, had the largest antlers and essentially developed osteoporosis as a result of their weight. Though it is called an Elk it is more closely related to deer and many scientists now refer to Irish Elk as Giant Deer.
