1st home antler mount

Postby fr0sty » Sun Apr 26, 2009 2:38 pm

I purchased a kit from thiswebiste.  It was fairly easy to do.  Lesson learned for next time, skin the head right away.  A winter's worth of drying made it a bugger to do. 

Overall, it turned out pretty well.  Below is a photo of the deer after I shot it opening day.

Nice buck! Nice job! I do a lot of plaque mounts for friends etc, won't accept the challenge if hair is still on. I don't charge and I don't remove dried hair anymore! It is a fun winter time hobby.
