Antler Display Systems Guide
The Scoop On European Skull Hangers And More
As we all know, there are many ways to end up with skulls to display. Maybe it’s your first buck, the one you shot on that special hunt, or a great-looking pair of sheds you picked up last Spring. But no matter how you got ahold of them, you’ll want a way to preserve the memory of those adventures for a lifetime. The European mount hanger is one of the easiest and most popular ways to enjoy your antlers, but there are several other deer
The Antler Mount
This is one of the most popular deer head mounts out there because it’s so easy to do it yourself. Many hunters and shed hunters alike enjoy the look of antler mounts and the versatility that they provide. The covering can be almost anything you want – from velvet to leather – and come in any color of the rainbow. In fact, we’ve seen some really cool leather work done on these type of mounts that practically turns them into a work of art by themselves!
Professionally done antler mounts can last for a very long time and are pretty affordable. However, if you’re going the do-it-yourself route, make sure you take your time and do it right. Otherwise, your antler mount may fall apart, potentially damaging the antlers and skull plate, and you’ll have to start all over again.
The Traditional Skull Mount
Also known as the European-style mount, the Traditional skull mount is very popular with hunters all over the world. They’re also quite affordable both to have professionally done and to do on your own. In fact, many hunters very much enjoy the process of creating a beautiful European mount to commemorate their amazing hunting experience.
Most of the work on this type of mount goes into cleaning and whitening the skull. Putting it on the wall is easy – all you need is a European mount hanger!
