I made a simple plaque to display a European buck mount. It is made from some spare oak that my dad cut down and used for trim inside my house about 18 years ago. Basically just made a panel cut out the design on the bandsaw, shaped with spindle sander, and used a 45ยบ router on the edge. Feel free to give me any tips or new ideas I love the feedback.

Shot this buck in 2012 archery season.

-- What? I didn't "break" it, I was just testing its durability, and then I "placed" it in the woods because it's made of wood and I just thought he should be with his family.

Nice buck. And a bow kill too! Good luck this fall.

Nice mount. If I ever shoot a buck, this is the type of mount I plan on using.

Did you process the skull yourself or take it to someone?

I did it myself. It takes a little bit of time watching over the skull boiling and some dirty work. But overall it is pretty easy to do.

It looks great. Cool design, like the oak and the skull with horns. Great job!
