Bought an 8 pointer...
Just purchased an 8point skull off of a guy who found it while turkey hunting the other day. I'll post pics when I get it back from my guy who does european mounts. BTW if anyone would like information on getting your buck mounted european style (lol) let me know. These guys are good and their works is outstanding. I would post a pic of a nice 6pointer I had them do back during deer season... but my son hit it with his basketball in the basement and it fell and well... broke in 3,000 peices. This NEW buck I bought, will be hung much more thoroughly! BTW,, I only paid $25 for it.....

to be continued...

Tator I am thinking of doing a Euro mount for the big sheds I found last year not big on the Euro's but don't know what else to do with them

The guys who do mine are very good and reasonable at it. One guy boils the skull until all the skin and external flesh, etc... is off. Then he takes the skull and power washes the brains out and gets he skull absolutely clean. Then if it hasn't stained brown he'll bleach it with a tooth brush and let it sit in the sun... he'll repeat this 2 or 3 times. If it does have browning on it, he'll paint it with high gloss white paint which really makes the skull pop. He's in the process of getting mine done- when he's done I'll post some pics of how it turns out. I know most guys want to do this themselves and they take pride in doing their own-- but I don't have a power washer nor do I have anything capable of boiling an entire skull. Plus I get the "buddy" discount from him which makes it a no-brainer. Good luck with yours and if you have any questions I can relay them to him.
