made a few

Post by bellyacher » Fri Jul 01, 2016 11:36 pm

Had a few euros sitting around doing nothing. So I did something. Found some old cypress fence panels in the woods cut them down and made a small panel. I cut down the skull to just a skull cap and mounted. Had this 1/4 sawed peace of ash sitting around for a few years so I made another. Had the brass plates made of were and when deer was taken

bellyacher,
Thanks for showing this type of mount. If I may, I'd like to back up what you have posted and displayed here on FOHAF.
My father-in-law showed me how to cut antlers to create the same as you are showing 50 years ago this coming November. He said it was easy to do and it cost nothing to create a nice looking display without spending a lot on taxidermy work.
So many folks just discard the antlers because the cost of professional work, maybe because it's not a "big boy". I always figured if a buck was killed, he ought to be remembered for more than being made into the best wild meat there is. We always try to get a picture and then save the antlers as you've described.
I have several sets of antlers in our living room and with over 50 years of deer huntin', I have only one shoulder mount, the rest are mounted as you have described. Some on single board plaques, several on some salvaged heart cypress boards from an old friends demolished home place and many, many more simply screwed to the utility room wall at ceiling height. Then there are wads of them out in my shop, wired to meat hooks but all have been cut where they could be mounted on a plaque or directly to a wall.
Here are a few pictures showing how some of them look.

Treefarmer, Thanks for the input. That's how use poor boys have to do it. I do not have any deer taxidermy mounts. Those 2 are the 2 biggest Ive ever got. If I ever get a 8pt or larger Ill have it mounted. I also have these hangin around and a few others here n there, I too beleave all deer Ive taken evens does are trophies to me.
