yea, i just cut the back part of it kinda on an angle, depends on what angle you want the antlers to sit at on the plack. or whatever. should only take two cuts. One from the front straight back, then one from behind the rack down to where you ended the first cut.

Have you ever heard of a European Skull Mount? This is a sample of what it looks like >> SAMPLE <<--Click to see
If anyone is interested in trying it, I'll post some instructions on how to do it.

I do the euro method too .Its way cheaperBut to answer the original question,USE A SAW

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
