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.
Hinge-cutting serves several purposes in regard to improving both whitetail habitat and your hunting experience. There are two main types of hinge cuts including a cut for screening and funnels and a cut for bedding. Hinge cuts for screening and funnels should be done somewhere between the knee and waist to block a deer's vision as well as block a travel path. Hinge cuts for bedding should be done around chest high so that there is room for a deer to bed underneath.
