Anybody have experience doing a Euro mount buck? I have hung heads and let them rot but never a true european. Links or sites welcome!

I used this one and it turned out great. Just waiting on my panel to mount it to the wall.

This Is one I did myself \:D


I just Skinned all the hide and meat off and then boiled it in a big pot and scraped all the rest of the meat off an boiled it again and then let it set in a bleach solution for a day and then let it dry out.

I followed the same Instructions you were given

If you get the toll paint in off white, or white, at walmart and paint the white part of the mount. I helps the bone stay together longer.And not crack and fall apart so fast. Put it on with a regular artists brush, get as much of the bone as possible. All around inside too. I also have one of one of the moose I shot. My wife did this in a aged bronze type thing with this paint. It looks cool, also.

Just don't over boil them like this taxidermist my customer used did. I feel as though he forgot about it and let the water boil out burning the skull or boiled it to long pulling the grease into the bone. If you boil your skulls bring the water to a boil turn the heat down insert skull and simmer untill you have everything off. The proceed with however you want to whiten the skull. This one was so bad I could not bleach it. Bleaching one the way I do it gets them as white as you would ever want one to be. No paint needed unless you have over cooked it like this one is. Just a good no yellowing sealer holds everything in place for years. The first photo is what I found after striping the paint off and the second is what the customer is getting back at 25.00 more then he could have had me do it for the first time.
