Antlers mounted… advice? help?

I want to get this bad boy mounted. Just the antlers though. My home is not ready for deer heads just yet and I just decided I wanted to save the antlers beyond just keeping them downstairs or in the barn, which is where my little spike-horn’s spikes are and all of Dad’s antlers. Anyways, I made up my mind late and the head has been hanging out in the barn with misc critters since Nov 25th.

So – friends and followers… where do I go? what can I do? I saw Rick’s post. Should I make it my weekend project?

  1. I think you can make nice mount with the antlers with things available in most sporting good stores. what you might want to do is put some thought into making the plaque more creative or inline with your homes decor. no reason you can share the reward of your hard work and have it fit your "upstairs" too!

    • Upstairs? This thing is going to be in my living room above my couch =) (I think)
