2015 Euro Mount Buck

Recommended Posts

Finally finished my first euro mount, of my 2015 rifle buck. I'm very happy with the results. The board used, came from the old homestead on the farm property. Where he was shot. It was built in 1814. The dried grass was given to me from my friends wife, who lives on the farm and cut it from the property. And the two 7mm-08 casings came from my gun. The one on the deers right is the one that fired the bullet that killed him. I wanted to use things for the mount, that connected to where the buck lived and died. I think I've done that. And showed him the respect he deserves.

Pretty sweet!

Always cool when you can put your own personal touch to a skull mount like that.

Sets it apart from everyone elses skulls and it helps tell a bigger story beyond the hunt.

Thank you all for the nice comments. I put a lot of thought into this do it yourself project. More so than just dropping off and picking up a mount from my taxidermist. It was a little messy in the beginning, but for the first attempt, not too bad. Looking forward to doing more in the future!
