Anyone do this?  I've got a pair of blacktail sheds I was thinking about mounting.  A real nice 3x4 set.

I've done an elk, in the middle of a big two point and have a set of whities I'd like to mount.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

I have an amazingly heavy set that my dad and I picked up two years apart. Mine has some serious porcupine damage so that has prevented me from getting it done. If some one knows how to repair chew maks let me know JB

Look through a few of the treads in the taxidermy section.  Their is a post on here where we have already discused this using several different methods. 

As for mounting sheds it's realy not that hard.  I will try and find out some info and get it to you one where to buy a good skul cap and kit.  PM me if you don't hear from me in a few days.   ;)
