This is the 8 pt buck skull I found on my uncles property early this week. It's my first EVER find so I've been cleaning it up for a euro mount.

When I found it, with some skin and hair still on it.

This is after cleaning it up. I didn't want it 100% white, cause I think it has a little character like this.

This is a close up shot of an antler, so is this weathering or some type of animal chew? Also is there any way of telling how long it's been dead?

Thanks for looking.
