Default Euro

Well I just finished my Euro mount from the Buck I shot late last week. Turned out pretty darn good. They seem to be getting easier to do and look better. I started skinning sat morn and was bleaching him sat afternoon.

Looks great!!! You just skinned it all with a knife? I've used several methods but haven't had one come out looking that clean.

My latest project I used the pond method but I wasn't real impressed with it.

I used the new Havalon knife and a dental pick that I bent the end into a small hook. That knife is amazing. I was kind of skeptical at first, but I used it this year on an elk a deer, and this Euro. Worth the money.

There are things you can do to make it turn out. Get as much flesh off. Bring water with dawn to a rolling boil. Put the skull in, and then turn the heat down to a simmer. Keep in no longer then 1 hr. Clean the rest of the flesh off it then put in household peroxide for 24 hrs.

That's a really nice buck! Congrats. I would have shoulder mounted him though. But, out there you prolly kill bucks his size fairly often.

Thanks early in. I'm just over shoulder mounts. I would rather have something I can grab off the wall and throw in the truck if my buddies want to see. Plus when you move a lot its annoying worrying about shoulder mounts in the trailer. I have 7 on the wall with euro mounts a foot below in between them. Looks pretty sharpe.

As for the deer out here. There are some big whitetail for sure. Most people don't hunt them here. They spend most of their time after elk and mulies. My approach is to hunt for a whitetail buck first. Then worry about an elk.

Funny story. last night I went out to try and fill a antlerless tag, and right at dark I glassed over by my stand I shot this buck from and there was one twice his size standing under my stand. But thats hunting.
