Re: help antler

I dont think u can have it officially scored now due to the break but I could be wrong
Anyway, a piece of pipe strap across the bottom and some drywall screws will do the trick. Do it right n u will never see the repair, did a few myself this way.

Re: help antler

Nope, broken and or repaired skull plates will disqualify it from being officially scored.

Re: help antler

Put ther antlers on top of a milk crate so that the antlers are in it and the skull plates are touching. Then put gorilla glue on them an let dry for about an hour. It worked for me on 3 deer,

20 feet up.

Re: help antler

Another option is to drill some pilot holes on either side of the cut. Run wire thru each. Take a pair of pliers and twist from under the skull cap and it will pull it tight. then put some bondo on the inside of the skull cap over the seam and wires. Rock solid.

Re: help antler

If you don't care about scoring, which is already too late anyway, just use 2 part epoxy.
