    I've always liked the idea of if its an archery trophy, then it belongs on an arrowhead shaped plaque, have aways like the poportions of the NFAA arrowhead pins awarded for big and small game awards, like these.

    Thats a great buck and a great mount. Your father did a good job. I would shoot that deer all day long, nothing little about it.

    Hello, when I worked in the taxidermy shop we would skin the skull out and boil it in peroxide and water. We boiled the skull outside using a turkey frier burner and a deep pan. We used peroxide and water due to the fact it was safe to let boil for longer and would not destroy the bone. After you boil scrape all the soft tissue from the skull we used an old dull knife and let dry. A couple tips use a coat hanger wire to scramble the brains and rinse out with water, use a long set of forceps to remove the soft tissue from the nasal cavity do this before you dry the skull. Be on the lookout for any parts of the skull that fall apart from the boil. once all has been boiled and cleaned let dry then use 5 min. epoxy to glue teeth and any other small parts that came apart from the boil. We then air brushed them with white semi gloss or flat your choice.

    Your welcome elkslayer, sorry about the delay in replying. I just got caught up in shooting my new bow and talking about it. The Threshold may not be the most up to date bow out there, but it fits me and it is a good shooter. I can't say I'm the most knowledgeable about bows, but I have skinned more animals in a season then most will in a lifetime. By the way I used a knife made in your neck of the woods the Gerber Gatormate great handle, light weight, and the steel while not exotic 420HC holds an edge and easy to sharpen.
