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.
Out here in Colorado, and in the units that I haunt, it is a tricky game to figure out how far to pack in on a rifle hunt. You want to get away from the masses that have moved game away from the roads but might want to stay close enough that you are taking advantage of the animals forced movements. There is no universal distance but I like the 1.5 to 4 mile range for day hunts where I am not planning on bivying out. This keeps you in that productive buffer zone where the animals are really...
