Default broken antler

Hello all,

This is my first post in the taxidermy section. I took a nice 8 point whitetail yesterday, but when I got to him, it appeared he only had one side of his rack. I figured out he broke his rack after the fact, I guess when he hit the ground. Anyway I picked up broken piece and went on, but later, when I tried to line up the broken piece on the skull, I realized there was a small chunk taken out of the inside right where it begins to curve upward above the brow tine. In other words, the brow tine is connected to the skull and the rest of the points broke off, but there was some small piece that I did not ever recover that helped link thetwo together. Can most any taxidermist handlethis repair with ease?
