Horn of Winter/Theories
From A Wiki of Ice and Fire

There is some discussion about the true whereabouts of the Horn of Winter.
The True Horn
- Hiding the true Horn with plenty of dragonglass would prevent the Others from finding it and using it to bring down the Wall.
- The Fist of the First Men, being (relatively) close to the Wall and a stronghold known to the Watch, is a sensible place for a former Watchman to have hidden an artifact of great power.
- The old warhorn is quite unremarkable in appearance - but there is no reason why the real horn should be anything large and extravagant. The mythical description may have been overlaid and embellished over the years.
- It's one of two horns in the books whose purpose is not yet divined.
