my euro mount from last year

This is the 8 point I got last year. I ordered one of the skull whitening kits from Van Dykes and skinned and boiled it and then put the bleaching agent on it for 24 hours and then brushed it off. it came out snow white. i used a piece of planed rough cut pine from one of my old buildings i tore down at camp for the plaque and mounted the shell head from my 35 below the name plate just like the old remington pump rifles had in the side of the receiver. we call this one the "Mountain Buck" because I got it in Buchanan SF in Fulton county. I like the euro look and plan on doing any other bucks i get this way. i think it looks good mounted on that old Zee Brick wall at camp.


My diploma is a DD Form 214

What happened to the frontal nose bones ( os incisivum for my fellow taxidermists)? You can glue them on if they fell of in the cleaning.
