Thanks. I use two screws though the wood . One into the back of the skull bone and one in the inside roof of the mouth. The top one holds the most and the bottom one just keeps it straight. I've done 5 of them total. It's a lot of messy work but I like them. It's the next best thing to mounting without the cost.
Thanks Psyco I guess I'm just to cheap. I mount all my antlers and like I said earlier, when I get to where I feel comfortable doing my own full mounts I'll get some capes and do them, Hopefully! There's a couple more around the corner you can't see that need to be done also.
Sorry guy's, I don't have any whitetail bucks mounted. Only a doe and my nieces buck that she killed her first day (and last) hunting! The kids at school teased her so bad she never wanted to go again. What a shame because she was so proud of it too.
Understanding wind currents and thermals in hilly, broken terrain can often be incredibly frustrating. I've found that collecting and storing milkweed seed pods during the late summer has made me a better hunter in the bluff country that I hunt. These little feather like seed dispersers will float on the lightest of air currents and will show you what the wind is not only doing right at you're location but more importantly down range. I like to use the off season to float them...
