    Who has the most realistic artificial whitetail deer skulls, I have a set of antlers a customer wants me to put on a artificial skull but the one I ordered is not realistic at all.

    Pinchback reproductions offers very realistic skulls. I don't use artificial skulls. I clean a skull, and fit the skullcap and antlers onto it. It's anchored by two 2 1/2" drywall screws into the underside of the pedicle. The brain cavity is filled with Bondo, and the skull cap set in place. Apoxie "Fix It" is used to cover and blend any seams, and then misted with a blend of paints to cover all repair work.

    That's what I use too. They don't look perfect, but only require a couple hours labor. I've done over 100 of them.
