How do I preserve deer feet to use as gun rack.

How do I turn deer feet into the preserved bent position so I can make a gun, hat, coat rack? Is there a certain kind of glue to use to inject into the foot joint to keep the foot bent in the up-right position? Thanks

You need to skin out the leg to the toes. Tan the skin, and purchase deer foot forms. After the skin is tanned, put it on the form, sew up the seam and let dry. Most all deer foot forms come with a bolt attached to them, so you can attach them to what ever your making.
