Best way to mount Euro Deer Skull to the wall

So my wife is decorating our soon to be born son's nursery in a woodland theme or something along those lines. She wants to use one of my buck skulls to hang on the wall. Normally I just keep them in my workshop hung on a nail. Its not exactly a rock solid mounting method if you know what I mean.

For a wooden mount, I'm either going to use some rough sawn oak I have in my woodshop or I'll go cut a log diagonal for the piece.

Whats the best way to do this? I've done some research on the google machine and some guys drill a hole below where the spinal cord hole and use a drywall screw to fasten it to the wood.

Some guys dremel the base out and used bondo to secure a wooden block in the brain cavity.

Then I saw some skull hooker thing that sticks out and from the looks of it hooks into some holes in the back of the skull.

I can make pretty much anything out of wood or metal if I want. Just curious as to what the pro's do/would do. My wifes main concern is it falling off the wall or something.

Thanks.

It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

All the skulls I do for customers I drill a hole in the back of skull just below the hole where spine attaches to skull then I put a bolt through whatever I mount it on n I put a nut inside of skull and screw the bolt into it. That way it can't ever fall off.
