    Fixing a split deer head

    I dropped one of my newer trophies the other day and its split right in the middle.

    Does anyone have any good ideas around putting them back together or know of anyone in the Auckland region who might be able to assist?

    I used no more nails, on an old head of mine.
    Worked ok, be careful not to let any excess squeeze out the top ( the part you can see)
    Still together, did it a couple of years back.
    He nui to ngaromanga, he iti to putanga.

    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !

    Id suggest you use araldyte. Not the fast cure type. Have masking tape handy to hold together and clear off excess whilst soft
