    Pictures of my broken pedicle buck European mount

    Hey Folks,
    Here are some pictures I just took of my European mount of the buck I took this year. It shows how really unique these antlers are.
    If you look closely you can see a small nub off of the downward facing tine. This nub was really pressing into the tissue around his eye. It had to be painful for this guy to make a rub.





    All said and done I think the project turned out pretty good. I skinned and fleshed the skull, then boiled it for 5 1/2 hrs. I used the garden hose to spray off the chunks as they loosened.
    I had to wait a week for some sunshine so I could peroxide bleach it. I used normal drugstore 3% peroxide and set it in the sun in a small plastic tub. Every half hour for 3 hrs I would take a paper towel soaked in the peroxide and squeeze more peroxide onto the skull to keep it wet.
    I wrapped the antlers in cling wrap so they wouldn't get bleached out with the skull.

    Certainly a unique whiteltail, that made a really cool skull mount. My Daughter shot one that's somewhat similar, I'm going to take it to a local taxidermist that has the Dermisted Beetles. Thanks for sharing the pics

    Here's her buck

    Happens in Louisiana too. Must be a fairly common injury. This deer actually had a healed over skull fracture. It would have been interesting to see ho whis rack progressed as he aged. This one had a pretty good start considering what he went through. I shot him as a cull, I had never seen such a thing before. I don't think he was any older than 2.5. His body weight, 125#, indicated a 1.5 year old deer, but that could have been a result form his injury. I will see if I can find the field photos I have of him. It was a gun kill though.
    8pts and a 22" spread LOL. At least he sounded awesome on the kill sheet.
