I have a little 6 pt rack that was the second buck I ever shot. Somewhere along the way about 3 inches of one of the tines broke off that i do not currently have and then I chopped them off at the base to use for rattling. I regret that now. I would like to somehow restore it back to original. I know spread wont be exact but it can be close. Can I do this at home and how would I do it? Or is this a job for the taxidermist? How much would it cost? Thanks.

Uncle Mike brand sells reproduction skulls you could remount the antlers to and Van Dyke's Taxidermy website sells apoxie clay that you could reform the missing tine. I think there is a video on Van Dyke's site as well.

I couldn't find the video, but this may help.
