Default My First Buck

Hey guys here is my first buck. I mounted him myself, its a fake skull and my dad made the plaque.

What do y'all think?

Looks great. I like the idea of using the state for the plaque.

Awesome buck man!
My first was a 4 pointer.
But did you have to cut the antlers off the skull plate?
Next time do a real euro and save yourself some money.
But it looks 110% up on the wall
I don't have plaques for any of my euros, but yours looks so purdy up there I might have to get some. I like the angle it gives it.

Great job...love the plaque. Does he make those commercially or was that a single shot?

Nice buck. I've done a few skull mounts myself. They are a lot of work and you have to be careful not to over boil them but they come out nice. If I get another decent buck, I think I'll try your route. Just to see the difference.
