thanks for the advise i will look it up.Congrats man looks good. Dont boil your next one just simmer nice and slow. Looks like you got it too hot and the nose broke off. If you do it slow you can keep all the delicate stuff around the nose.
Google the 5 hour euro mount done over on taxidermy.net
that is a nice job you did more creative then i am thats for sure i cant build nothing lolhere is a pic of my buck i got last year and the euro mount i did on him. i did not make the stand but i now have a pattern and can more more like it.
i am very pleased with my first attempt and will probably do it again if i am able to get another buck (this was my frist buck)

it only took me about 4 tedious hours of boiling and scraping to get the skull cleaned then I let it dry for a week and then cleaned it one more time in the sink just to make sure I go everything. after that I just let it dry for a few months mostly bc I got busy and just did not take the time to finish it. the final step was about 4-5 days soaking in bleach and water. then a couple days to dry out then I mounted it to the stand. I was not in a big rush so it took me longer but with a few breaks where I did nothing to it but let it sit in a box on paper towel and dry.How long did it take ya from start to finish? Looks Great!!
