8 pt and 10 pt together
« on: September 14, 2019, 12:49:04 PM »
I had several pics of this 8pt and 10pt together a few years ago.

I was able to harvest the 8pt during archery season while hunting alone that year and then we were able to harvest the 10pt with my firearms party a few weeks later.

It was a great season!

It's nice to see a couple big ones hanging out together.  I got this trail cam photo two years ago.
As far as I know, neither buck was killed during that season.

that's cool. Correct me if I'm wrong but that's considered a European mount, correct?? Anyone know a ballpark figure what they charge to do those??

That's correct, European mount. We had one done for us many years ago and I think it was around $100. I've done all of my own and many for friends and family since then over the years.

There are several helpful how to videos out on you tube that I watched to gain knowledge and develop my own way of doing them. I use a propane burner from a turkey fryer set up and a large black pot I picked up at Fleet Farm to boil the skulls slowly after doing hands on clean up of the skulls first to remove as much of the meat, etc as I can. Usually can get one boiled clean in a good afternoon out on the patio.

Pic 1...the mounted one we had done professionally

Three pics of one I did for a very good friend as a surprise for him from his family. They took the buck head from the barn where he had it sitting and told him their son saw a coyote dragging it off when feeding the horses and they brought it to me to clean up and boil. He sure was surprised when he got it back at Christmas that year! Great times!

Pic 5... Two of my mature bucks harvested that I did myself

Those are nice Realtree.  I would guess they would be more in the $150 range including the stand.  Here are a couple my buddy did for me two years ago.
He made the stands as well.
