    Hello everyone, this isn't a gamehead but it is deer bits so I'm hoping this is the right place to ask. I picked this up from Goodwill and repaired the loose feet, but this one is completely off. What can I put in the hollowed-out bone so that it can be screwed into the wood again? I've added pictures to show what I'm dealing with. Thank you! rack3.jpg rack1.jpg rack2.jpg

    1/4 inch threaded rod, cut to proper length and epoxy glue to set overnight

    Since a wood screw is already sticking thru plaque, get a wooden dowel that will be tight to hole of bone and tap it in cut to length and five minute epoxy into place . Then simply put up to wood screw and screw it on , drill a small pilot hole if necessary. But just screw till tight

    This is the way I would do it…Home Depot, Lowe’s or Hobby Lobby would have the wooden dowel you would need.

    Just like 13 point instructs.
    Just epoxy in the hole before you tap the dowel in. Otherwise you might not be able to get the dowel out to epoxy it in place.
