    Maybe an upper front leg bone of a deer?

      Could be the missing link. It doesn’t look like a white tail deer bone to me I’ve butchered to many. It’s got a socket and looks more like a beef rib bone . Unless your talking about larger elk or moose I’m not familiar with dressing those. Sure it’s not a bone off your standing rib roast from Christmas?

        I was leaning to a rib bone of some type, maybe if it was complete I could figure it out. Thank's for trying to help.
