How can I change the angle of the mount to the backboard ?

I recently got my deer head mount back from a taxidermy shop. It was mounted in a full sneak. I would like to change the angle it was mounted to the backboard so it is angle downward exposing the horns more. How much of a job is this? and how can I do it myself ?

...but I don't feel like working!

If you're talking a small amount - a half inch or so. You can simply put a few drops of hot glue on each side of the backside/top so that the top of the panel hits the glue now and forces the panel to point downward. Hot glue won't scratch the wall either. A rather archaic fix, but a quick and easy one.

If you're talking a considerable distance. I can't imagine doing anything outside of re-mounting/re-positioning the head to the plaque as any drastic changes to the plaque angle (in relation to the wall) would be quite noticeable...

I thought you were a taxidermist.

Call your taxidermist and ask him or her what to do...


Full Sneak or Not........

......The angle that a deer holds it's head is pretty much constant, unless it is feeding or drinking. The only real way to showing more of the antlers is to lower where you hang the head.
