Whitetail mounts

I only have one mount too. He was my first about 15 years ago. The ones in the background are ones that I did antler mounts to. Some of them should be full mounts, maybe when I learn how.

Here is a 10 pointer with an open mouth a friend of mine mounted for me.

How do you attach your skulls to the board? Do you mount them straight to the board or is there angled piece in there? They look real good!

Whitetail mounts

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.

I've done a couple european mounts but never mounted to a board. They are a nice option and fairly easy to do it yourself. Kind of has a nasty stinch to it

Whitetail mounts

Thanks Psyco Thumbs up 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.

That's a nice old deer you got mounted Thumbs up

Whitetail mounts

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.
