    Hi All, just finishing my first bighorn sheep and I was curious what is the best product or process to fill in the little pilot holes I drilled in the back of the bases to make sure the horns went back on in the same position.

    Came out great. Is that a customers trophy or was a pickup from somewhere?

    You could also use epoxie skulp and mix color in the epoxie skulp until it matches when dry. Blend color around the outside of the patch until it matches. Nice ram!

    Oh thank you, yes it was a friend from work who let me give it a try. Getting the sheaths off was a task but got some great info off of here and sweated them off.
