    look on ebay, someone sells mini replicas. Those may work
     

  3. If you get desperate, you can always buy the deer bobblehead that guys put on their truck dashboard and use the rack from that. Or make one from apoxie sculpt.

    Glad you enjoyed the photo. That was our boy Elliott - from many years ago.

    I bought the antlers while I had a display at an outdoor exhibition in Columbus, OH, from a vendor that was selling them as pin backs for the front of a ball cap.

    I removed the pin, ground the skull portion away and shaped it to fit Elliott's head, then glued a bit of tanned Squirrel scalp to it.

    That was over 15 years ago, and although Elliott has gone on to greener, nut-filled pastures, those antlers are still around.

    John.
