This past rifle season I walked out a small patch of woods near my house on the last day in hope to bump something to my young brothers that had just started hunting last year. No luck but I returned for some squirrel in the late season an on the same trail I walked the last day of season I found a right shed of a ten point hair still on the burrs. I didn't score it but it makes my big 8 point looks little I'm guessing he would of been in the 150 class. I never found the second half being it was so close to the mountain he could of lost it anywhere an while it looks great at the base of my red fox mount it seems a shame to let such a perfect antler be a habitat piece so I had decided to give my hand a try at antler reproduction. I want to make the left side to match an then mount the set for a showroom piece. I'm asking for any tips or products tht any one might know of I have done some small antler repair but never from scratch recreated an entire anlter.

Cost efficient way- make your rack out of wire, main beam use a bunch and for each point start at ber and run up. Use zip ties to hold wires together. Next use car bondo and put all over wire. Once it starts to set you can rasp and file to match the other side, next get an taxidermy apoxy and smooth on entire rack. If needed put detail in that. Then paint or stain to your liken. I've done whole racks out of apoxy just cost a lot. Another alternative is to find a rack that's close to match cut and add points if needed. If you have any questions my name is randy Kuntz, you can email [email protected] or call 717-421-8272. More then happy help
