What are the pro`s and con`s of speed septums?
Return to Beginners Category Menu
A finished nose interior as opposed to a putty filled nosteral.
Can't think of a con at the moment.
You can but the septum maker ( the steel part ) I wouldn't but the septums. They are a waste of money. If you buy milk or cider in the plastic jugs they will make a much better looking septum.
If you look on the bottom part and near the handle of the jugs there are a feew areas that are ridged just like the ones you buy. Cut them out and use these instead. All that's need is a paint job and your ready to go. I have use these extensively in compitition and never had a judge complain about it.
Frank is absolutly correct, and I'm sure the old milk jug septums have been used in many, many deer over the years. However, from a financial perspective, it's just not worth it to make your own. At a cost of one dollar each, or thereabouts, unless you're mass producing them, it's not worth the time.
But you'll have to forgive Frank. He carves his own fish too. LMAO (Sorry Buddy!) I love them as I don't have to guess and cut and cuss over milk jugs. BUT I did hear of ONE taxidermist complaining about how visible those little red veins were after they were installed. When I told them that they'd put them in BACKWARDS, the line went dead for a few seconds before I heard, "Well, I'll be damned."
