This is a small project, but it now hangs in our living room and I’m pleased with how it looks. I got my first buck in 2013 and it was a beauty. My wife was not interested in a stuff head anywhere in the house and frankly, I didn’t see anywhere in our current house that it would fit either. In an alternate reality, I would have a wood paneled study with a leather arm chair and a fire place and then I could get a deer head mounted to hang there.
Looking around online, I found a lot of veneered particle board mounts, which I wasn’t interested in. I had recently acquired a pile of finished boards that had once been a part of some piece of furniture or another. I found them at the local ReStore. They were cheap and they were solid wood, so I nabbed them. I was playing around with them to see what I could do for my antlers and this arrangement caught my fancy. I’ve never seen anything like it, but I think it looks pretty good.
