    I have a couple more in the works but here are 2 that I really like. The deer is a little generic but I haven't seen this style of plaque before. He was an archery buck so my taxidermist made the plaque to fit the archery theme. The bobcat was a custom form made by my taxidermist. He was a 38 pound tom that I called in with a little hand held call a couple years ago.

    I have a wood duck and a banded Canada goose being done right now. Both are custom mounts. I'll share them when I get them back...

    Hilltop- thanks again for sharing. I like the "arrowhead-ish" plaque. And the tom is beautiful. Looking forward to seeing the waterfowl.

    If you happen to freeze the antelope head, take it out and put the head down inside a 5-gallon bucket to thaw for a day or two. Be careful to not let the sun and/or heat get close to the head, as it will spoil the meat, and make the process much less enjoyable. Keeping the head in a garbage bag, inside a cooler with ice is best.

    Curious what the mount that secures the heads to the plaque looks like. Long bolt or rod in the Axis Joint?

    Just an idea, if you skin out the heads and cape , it would probably paid for your euro's. Taxidermists buy capes all the time and some will just trade you a euro for your cape. I love the one on the left and that is the one I would of taken if all 3 were together... This is my latest.
