Nice euro mount. I really like the arrowhead mounting board. I am using a piece of slab wood from my buddy's sawmill for this years mount.

I like that plaque as well! At first I didn't notice it... was too busy looking at the rack! I did a skull wedge mount and just cut a nice oak board into a typical plaque shape and mounted it on the oak board-- I'll have to take a pic of it and show you guys... it was my broken ear buck, for those of you who remember that one. Next time I'm going to steal your idea, if that's ok NG

I cut the plaque from an old peice of 1x8 shelf board I had in the garage, I wanted to give it a "rustic" look. I got the basic shape with a jigsaw, mitered the edges and used a rasp to put the grooves along the sides, then alternated sanding and charring with a propane torch untill I got the look I wanted.

Glad you guys like it.

Here is the mount I did this year, like I said, I just cut the skull in a wedge shape and then boiled the hide/skin off of it then bleached it overnight. Thought it turned out well. The oak board cost me like $8 and I have enough of it left to do another mount in the future. The wife thinks the arrow being a trophy is a little much? anyone else disagree like me?

I had the wood laying around, I got a new propane bottle for my torch, and I got 5 big bottles of peroxide (regular cuts and scrapes stuff). And I spent about $5 at the car wash (They have high pressure) after I boiled it to get the gunk off and out.
Total was about $15.
had to replace my wifes big stock pot, but I don't know if that counts...
