The development of flip-graft, yield of antler and growth of antler in Sika deer, Red deer and Elk were investigated to establish the technology of transplantation of flip-graft. Pedicle flip-grafts were transplanted on the sides pedicle, on the midline of forehead and on the middle line of the skull. The success rate of transplantation was 42%, 5 animals out of 12. The yields of antler and number of point were 716g and 1,071g, and 2.3 and 1.0 in control and donor of flip-graft, respectively in red deer. The length and weight of anther of recipient of flip-graft in elk were 17cm, 302g. The length and weight of hard antler of recipient of flip-graft in red deer were 26cm and 122g. Flip-graft should be transplanted on the scull after removal of the corium for strong adherence.
