Altering a Closed Mouth Elk Form into a Growling Mouth Form

Discussion in 'Deer and Gameheads' started by [email protected], May 10, 2017.

  1. I need some information on how to modify a closed mouth elk form into a growling open mouth form. Not a full bugle, just open and inch or so. Sort of like the picture.

    Any help, videos, suggestions would be appreciated.

    If you want it like the pic you posted, You will have to open the nostrils a little more than normal.

    Trufitt sells the half bugle mouth cup and the form also. That's my favorite open mouth. I hate all the rest. They look like they are eating an Apple rather than bugling.
