Got plenty of time on my hands I reckon right now.

I meant to post these here last week but posted them in another forum I think. I've got all these racks laying around, hanging in the shop or in boxes so I figured I'd do something with them. They are sorta like the buck stumps I've seen but I figured I could do something similiar without the $125 price tag, although the Buck Stumps look really nice.

5pt killed in 2000 in Alabama hunting with dogs.




Two 5pts and a 7pt all from Alabama in 1998 and 2000



6pt from TN in 1999 I think



Other two plaques are from 1998 and 2004 and I didn't do them.




I'm not tickled with the first stump I did (may redo it) and the plaque did on the 6pt looks good but I've got some other ideas for future plaques if I decide to play around with anymore. I've got one more 7pt I want to do a stump one on and my dad has two or three including one 10pt he wants me to do.

Here are some that Red Rider 450's dad did and they look real nice also. They are the stump cuts of a big cedar.

9pt



18" wide 7pt

All were easy to do once we got the hang of it. My biggest issue was learning to form up the plaster. I don't use the foam balls like some do. To easy to simply form the plaster.

All these were painted except the first one that I covered with black leather. Paint looks better to me and is much easier.

The stumps were hallowed out in the middle for the skull plate to fit into but not very deep. I normally go to deep but I use the plaster to fill it back up and level it so the skull plate fits and is level.

I guess the tough part is wearing that ski mask in Hobby Lobby so nobody sees me while getting some of this stuff. \:D
