what are the different kinds of mounts you can get? i know you can cut the antlers off and make a plaque, which looks good for smaller 6 or 8 point bucks. What are the other kinds of mounts? European????

A European mount looks cool. Leave the antlers attached to the skull and remove all the flesh. Either boil or bleach the remaining bits of flesh off the skull. Or I guess you could let nature take its course to get the hide off(insects & such). Anyway, the point is to have a bleach white skull when done. Keep the antlers their natural color. Attach the skull to a board or plaque or just hang it on the wall.
