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?

As you know, Dad and I saw way more deer than turkey when we attempted to turkey hunt for the third spring season in a row.  It is still a little surreal to think about because our first turkey season ended two weeks before I had O. My schedule was so busy that I...
