flintlock buck skull

Got my 2014 flintlock buck skull back the other day!


Happy with how it turned out...first time having anything done by someone with beetles...my simmered skulls have been hit or miss..I have a couple really nice and a couple that are falling apart...didn't want this one to fall apart..my biggest buck to date...and with a flintlock...







Need to get it on the wall...or make a base for it...not sure what I wanna do yet...might make a base for it to sit on my dresser...I have others hung against a buck hide on the top of the dresser mirror..no room for more..and made a wood plaque for another on the wall I like..might take that design and turn it into a pedistal base...



Not a monster...but a good PA mountain buck with the flintlock and a hunt shared with a couple of my best friends...a day I won't forget...shot a doe stand hunti g earlier that morning and a my buddies had to leave camp that evening...we decided to try one quick push...we never did it before...but our hunch was spot on as the buck and numerous deer came out of the push

Re: flintlock buck skull

Thanx guys!!


I debated highly about a shoulder mount...if his cape wasn't nasty I likely would have...almost looked like mange on his face...it was odd..it would have made the mount look terrible...and I dont wanna buy a cape...i figured with a professionally done skull I can always take a cape off another buck I kill and use it if I want...but I like the skull....


Maybe tomorrow or Tuesday while I am off I can get something made for a mount....

Re: flintlock buck skull

I concur, awesome!

I have the same dilemma. Thinking about using some old weathered oak fence boards from the farm as a backdrop/mount plate for the 4 I have to mount. Maybe a vertically staggered set of boards? I also gave thought to setting them up on a weathered post and rail recreation.

Re: flintlock buck skull

My B-I-L did this for me on this years rifle buck. I should take a finished product photo now that the lamp shade is on and it's in my my man cave.

Excuse the clutter on his counter top.


Don't Tread On Me is what it says and I'll take that to my grave.

Re: flintlock buck skull

Wow! That's a cool idea! Did he fish the wire through the arrow??



Turkey hunting is whooping my butt...I'm not getting much else done besides a few hours of sleep and work...

I love/hate May lol...haven't gotten to chase birds since 2009...





That's the ones on the mirror on a buck hide...




One I got craft for...hard to tell but the bottom sits about 6" off the wall so its angled...gives it a nice look...
