I have always fought taking off antlers. I used a concrete block to make my cut at the back of the skull by sticking the nose & face in a hole. I recently got a dvd of Ben Mears methods and he used a 2x4 with spikes on each end clamped to his work bench with c-clamps. One set of spikes was set far enough apart to engage the head meat and hold it firmly while you made your front cut between the eye orbit and antler burr. The second set of spikes were longer and closer together to run up the nose and mouth and support that while making the cut from the rear of the skull. I am going to make one of these for my son to use. What do others use ?
