Im looking for a way to display my antlers that looks nice, Im not talking nice enough for the house or anything but better than hanging on the shop wall like I have now. I was thinking about taking a sawmill cut 1x12 and fake aging it and lining the racks down the board and burning the dates each was taken under each rack but just wanted to see what yall thought and how yall display yours.

I have a friend who has a 100+ year old barn on his father in laws farm & its falling down i have pulled several boards off the old barn & it makes a great display piece. especially the ones with old nails & knot holes in them looks really rustic.

I like both displays, but I'd probably go with Hook's (slice of
Pine) look, for a real nice rack...I got a bunch of basket racks
and odd-ball stuff that would be suitable for display on, say,
the outside of my shop....................................BH51..

I always thought these were cool but they are expensive. You can probably find them allot cheaper somewhere else if you look around.

my buddy takes his european mounts to an airbrush artist and has him draw a picture on the head describing his hunt. It's really cool.
