Those look GREAT!!

Try to move your D-ring hanger down a little,  so you customer won't constantly see it when hanging.

Looks very nice.  What did you apply to the antlers and horns?

Skulls look great! But what is going on with the finish on your panels? looks like they need some work before going out to your customers.

I second that on the plaque finish and the D ring.  Skulls look great.

LTL here, first post. 

Love the Ram!  But I'm partial to those.

I'm not a taxidermist, I'm a carpenter, with bad habits and a little land.  If the pic comes through, it's an oak plaque I shaped and cut with hand tools, and applied a light French polish to, light meaning I left some of the grain to show through.  I gave up on modern finishes a while ago.  FP takes some time, but the result is well worth the effort. 

Why not wire it like a picture frame?  Good weight holding, easy to catch a nail or screw head.  That's not a suggestion, I'm curious.
