Re: velvet

i do not if it is "best" but one way is freeze drying them. other than that you can get artificial velvet done.

Re: velvet

Planning on hunting buck before they shed the velvet? The artifical never looks real in my honest opinion.

There is no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid people asking questions.

Re: velvet

just be careful if you decide not to take the proper steps to preserve them because they will likely bring in bugs to all the other mounts in your/his house if you don't. so treat them correctly or leave them somewhere that is a safe distance away from other trophies.

Re: velvet

Antlers are not hard enough at this time to try and save. Would most likely rot. Too much blood flow.
