    i know there are alot of posts about the antlers and what not, not fitting.i have a muley that the antlers sitck out of the tub.i have heard they dont like to cross vaseline.if i put vaseline around the antler burs do you think they will get out of the tub without the lid if the temp is not high enough for them to fly?

    don't take a chance...wrap main beams with tin foil. ;D

  3. vaseline is okay, but i prefer to put alum. tape on above the burrs. doesnt kill any bugs that way. tape isnt too bad to get off, esp. if you dont clean the antler first.

  7. I just used foil to wrap around the horns, then used aluminum screen mesh to keep other bugs out.
    I did not get any that climbed out.
    It worked great on this one.
