Mounting Elk Antlers

While hunting Colorado this fall I picked up a set of elk antlers for a friend. These are not attached to a skull. He intends to mount them on the outside of his log home. What would be the best way to mount them so that they could be positioned on the outside of his house?

Thanks for the advise!

Mounting Elk Antlers

They make shed connector mounting plates. You screw the base of the antlers to a mounting plate that can then be mounted on a wall.

Examples are listed here:
