Mounted my 8 pt from last year and.....

Recommended Posts

Here is a pict of the horns I just mounted. Pretty cool kit from Cabelas, easy to do. Got a call from my Nephew yesterday, an elk and caribou mount may be ending up in my cabin next weekend. A friends relative passed away and they have no place for these two mounts. The wall in the new addition at the cabin is probably 16" tall they will look great there. I'll post picts if it all comes about.

Very nice mount. The kIt looks so much better than the less expensive ones. The rivits really dress it up. Thanks for posting. I'll be getting a couple from Cabelas. Want to make my own, that day hasn't come, yet.

I really liked the flexible plastic piece that goes over the skull plate. It was pre cut and sort of adjustable to horn size. Thanks guys.

Burt, i have one similar but it has a space to add a picture. Makes the plaque a little bigger with the picture but much cheaper than a mount. Got it thru Cabela's didn't cost much.

why do you guys like to cover up the skull? Sorry, im just not a big fan of the leather, felt, or plastic look....I prefer the actual skull.

I don't know how you ever came up with that from what I posted?

I was remarking about your picture, for some reason when you quote a person the picture isn't included.

After a bit, you won't have enough space for all the racks and will need to keep them someplace else.

I have them all over the place but most are in the garage.

Cool....I want to see a pic of the rubber one.


Give it a name, apply human sentiment, and its no longer a wild animal its a Disney character.

Just my preference the way it's mounted. I like the skull also.

How can you not have enough room for small bucks/skulls? Unless you got 200+ of them...considering your only allowed 1 or 2 a year....it would take years to even get to the say 50 racks.
