    mounting a shed elk antler

    I found a pretty nice elk antler last week hunting and want to put it on the wall for a decoration was wondering if anybody else had done this and had pics and ideas on how to attach it to the wall. I'm thinking maybe a picture type hanger screwed in the base and one in the last point but it is pretty awkwardly weighted in the center and don't want to screw up drilling into the back of the last point and break it

    Re: mounting a shed elk antler

    Jim, being somewhat bankrupted with the English language, call me or come by. I can show you how I put mine on a board for hat racks and such. OK, I'll try. Cut the base and whatever part of the antler that touches the board on the same plane. Then screw from the back side through the wood and into the antler. Makes for invisible attachment and a handsome hat rack when done. The board can be most anything you want. Usually I've got a 1X12 pine or some such laying around. By making multiple flats on the antler, you have more surface area for both stability and attaching. Steve.

    That's a good idea Steve I didn't even think of putting it on another board that may be the ticket I was trying to make it so it just looks like its on the wall with nothing put its just really awkward its not huge just a 5point but really nice shape and my first full shed I've ever found. Plus I found it almost a half mile away with binos and spotter and had to make a death march before dark to get it lol
