need ideas for browser buck

Discussion in 'Beginners' started by BOWFISH, Feb 23, 2012.

  1. i am finishing up a mount of a small 8pt on a research manikins browser buck looking up at a steep angle.
    i have a few ideas for what to hang over him for him to be looking at.

    my idea is a branch with a bobber and some fishing line tangled in the branch.
    i ran it by my wife and she thinks its a stupid idea so i must be on the right track.

    i am sure this has been done with leaves, persimmons,licking Branch's
    any other ideas?

    yeh id listen to your wife...keep it natural as possible is usually the best path(well for for most things anyways)
     
  4. it doesnt have to be something the deer wants to eat just something a deer might look at

    Get a freeze dried Butterfly, and put a twinkle in the deers eye. Like Bambi!

    maybe put an arrow through a branch like it just got shot at and its checking it out. or ruff up the arrow like its been hanging there for a couple of years. just my 2 cents worth.
     
  8. That is a good idea.
    I like that it tells a story
    Thanks
