I thought you did your own Taxidermy ? I finally found a brow tine for my Bull and took it over to my Retired taxidermists house. After 7 years into retirement still has some materials. We spent 4 hours on it , mostly B.S.N. Looks pretty good! I could of done better sculpting the epoxy sculpt. He told me to just let it go or you would be there 10 hours. I will post it with a new thread so I am not hijacking yours. Have you found his sheds yet this year? I have seen Mule deer dropping them, but the Whitetails are hanging on as well as the Elk I have seen.  Good luck!!

Taxidermy

Bleu, I go in and do certain things and my taxidermist does the rest. Like with my mounts I go in and alter the form the way I want it and he mounts it. I have fixed my own points on one bull both with appoxy and cutting up another antler and reattaching it. I of course do all my own euro's and my families. I can't wait to see your bull ! Thumbs up

Here is one of my bulls I repaired several points on and the mainbeam, 5th, and 6th points with a completely different bull antler.
