2015 BOW BUCK EURO

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I pulled my 2015 Bow Buck out of the dirt. Bugs did a perfect  job. I will clean him up and do a light bleaching. I prefer a natural patina. The pure white mounts look too fake for my taste.

Very nice!! It's a lot less messy to let the bugs do the work. Maybe I'll go that route the next time. And congrats again on a dandy buck!

He is a dandy but a two year old if the mass and teeth indicate anything. I can't help but imagine what another year would have made him. In any case, I only ever saw this guy once. He may not have been very local. Happy to have got him.

Papist, are you using bleach or peroxide? Bleach will weaken the bone so be careful. Peroxide is much better for cleanup, but stay away from the higher volume peroxide as that will turn it white like the one in my profile pic.

using a little bleach, baking powder and low peroxide. Might let the sun do some work on it also
