Twice that mrbb said. Look it up on youtube. There are videos showing how to do it. It's basically just cutting a wedge out of the skull.

Come out a few inches from the base of each antler and use a hacksaw and cut through the skull, hide and all. Cut completely through the skull bone all the way around both antlers so when you lift both antlers they are held together by the bone of the skull. Clean any flesh off.
If you want to keep the hide on you have to treat it so it tans and doesn’t shrink. If you want to take it off, then just clean the skull base again by boiling it and removing the rest of the flesh. Then you can mount it to a plaque.
