recovered bullets

What do you do with any bullets that you recover from your deer?

Mine sit in a dish on my dresser.  Each ugly lump is a happy memory.

My brother in law glues them to the antler mounts.

What do you do with yours?

bullets

Well, I hate to admit that I've lost some of mine. seemed important at the time, but I was not as smart as I shouldda been. I do still have the bullets from the jumbo Georgia hog though and at some point want to marry them up with the mount, some how.

Lots of bullets lost "on the other side" and lots more never thought of. I do appreciate things now more, however. Need I elaborate??   Confused

I have a lot of them in trays

I have a lot of them in trays on the reloading bench. I was thinking of glueing the mushroomed bullet into the mouth of the fired casing and mounting with the skull mount or shoulder mount of the deer. I think I will put the the bullet of the boar hog I killed on the nose of the skull. But for the most part, they sit in a reloading tray.

I considered glueing

I considered glueing mine to the wall mounts too, but I like to pick them up when I think about the hunt that they came from. 

So I decided not to because if I did, I wouldn't be able to do that if they were glued down.

Bullets

Here is one of my prize recoveries, a Barnes bullet recovered from a mule deer shot a 180y with a muzzle loader, the bullet was poking out the other side just enough to pick it out with a knife.

I have to say this is one product that does what it said it would!

 As for the rest of them, they just sit around in a little bowl waiting to be picked up and have there stories told one more time!
