Joeym, I have yet to attempt one of those. Might never see one as I don't know of many around here at all. With the weight of those horns, is 4 to 6 inches of a core enough to hold the weight without a steel rod or something inserted for internal support?

The horns are surprisingly lightweight.   Never had an issue with them coming off or loose

Well guys I finally got my longhorn mounted!!!!  Here he is drying, still need to do the finish work so I can get this big boy out of the showroom!  horns ended up being a little over 6' tip to tip on the mount!!!  My customer also wanted the back hide soft-tanned,  that I had to send to the tannery,  ended up being 47 sq/ft!!! and turned out beautiful!
