how far away did you find those apart? some crazy genes there!
rough guess 3 mi apart
also the moose antler is not genes, the buck was previously injured and it caused the antler to grow funny. The skull is cracked in front and behind the pedicle.


oh I gotcha still a good deer. I am about to start a euro mount of my own for the first time. you'll probably be getting a message pretty soon lol. you do a good job with them.
thanks. My first was not so great. boiled it around 7 hours which disintegrated the nose bones. This one I did turned out perfect and I boiled it just long enough that the flesh was fairly easy to scrape and scrub off. maybe 2-3 hours or so, pulling it out of the water to test and remove flesh every now and then.

I am just now starting to edit all the video I took of the process and will have it on youtube within the next day or so. Remind me to send you a link, it should help explain the process.

Awesome!!! Looks great catman! I hadn't seen that other one before, crazy rack, do you know the scores for those bucks, or estimate?
old one nets in the 165-170 range, don't remember gross, I think 180s, tr new one grosses low 150s


Very nice! Still great job on the euro mounts for sure! And I tried to send you a pm asking "how to" questions, but it said it was full.

Sorry my pm box does fill up often cause I don't clean it enough. I will clean it in a minute.

Found out that I lost a good bit of footage that i thought was on my computer, and I had deleted it off my iphone. Installed recovery software but it didn't find anything. It was just the bleaching process that I lost, so I still have enough to work with and make the video.

Thanks, I just sent the pm.
Stinks about loosing the footage. I've had pictures just vanish on my computer before so I know the feeling. And that video will probaby answer most of the questions I just sent, so when done send me the link too if you don't mind.
