    skull mounts for cast antlers ?

    wandering round the bush on mates farm and came across a nice cast antler, bit further on and later in day found what looks to be the other half - well damn close. So wondering if any one can put me on to a base or part skull i could mount these on. I see Cabela's and Midway have "Mountain Mikes" skull or bases. These would do the trick. Any one in NZ sell these ?

    Would a cow skull be any use to you? I know cows don't wear antlers but if you just need a scull cap should do the trick.

    In the past I have sanded and oiled up a nice length of 4x2 rimu 30-50cm long, and screwed the antlers onto it horizontally, points out, coronets touching. Then you can screw the rimu board to the wall and use it to hang coats on, decoration, etc. Its a simple and different way of presenting cast antlers.

    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
