Incorperating the sheds...

    I was just curious if anyone had some unigue ideas for incorperating a bucks sheds into the mount? I have done some where they are lying on the pedestal or on a leather strap on the wall, etc.

    Im just brainstorming, trying to think of something different? I have a few bucks to do with the matched sets or singles, or mutiple sheds of the bucks.

  2. I thought I had a picture, but I can't find it. I think it was posted on here from one of the shows, but the pedestal was MADE from the sheds of the buck from his 3 years before. It was just the sheds, don't know how he attached them. Started at the bottom with the smallest and finished just under the mount with the previous years. All the antlers were set the same way, at the same angle, at the same distance apart. In other words if you looked at it from the side, and removed the actual deer, it looked like 4 sets of antlers, all the same angle, just smaller to bigger. It was awesome. Maybe someone knows where that picture is, or who did it.

    I've always thought on your pedestal, if you had a door. Use the shed as a handle and maybe even put them all the way around.

    Its nice to have them where you can remove them and hold or look at them I think.

    I dont think I could ever drill or cut them... especially when theyre off the buck I killed!

    Anyone have ideas or pictures?

    build you a big enough pedestal to lay all his antlers on it. then you can pick them up any time. use your imagination. have fun with it.
