I was watching Wardens on one of the outdoor channels. A young girl shot a 7 year old sheep with a huge full curl and after the wardens took their notes on it they drilled one of the horns and put a steel pin in it. Can this be removed when cleaning for a euro mount. Not doing one just want to know what the pin is for and why they do it any info will be welcome.
Thanks Rizzo

No. They are permanent plugs (and by law must not be removed). They arr strategically placed where they don't penetrate the cores and come off with the cases.

If the truth offends you, then by all means, avoid it.
