Topic tags/keywords: question

I have three decent size deer racks that Id like to find some ideas on how to mount that would still look nice. They’ve all been cut off with the skull plate so the full skull is not there just the cap that connects the antlers. Any of you other hunters out there have any ideas?
Also how’s everyone’s hunting season going?

My idea is to round off. Then leather wrap (old boot top turned inside out, tied with rawhide or even just use the rawhide as a tight wrap on the center) and then mount to an arrow shaped piece of nice hard wood. If you can find it live edged would really look terrific.

If live edge the right shape is not an option; try a scorched or wood-burned design.

The wood could be dark or light finished depending on your taste.
