Thread: Ive just got my first deer.

  1. #1

    Ive just got my first deer.

    Hello all,

    Yesterday 10/3/11 i shot my first Muntjac (and my first deer as well), i am very pleased with myself for this and have decided to keep the skull as a memento. I have boiled the skull down and will be putting it in peroxide later; however i have not got a clue how to fix it to a wooden trophy shield.
    Is there a way to do this, or is it just lots of hot glue from a glue gun???

    Any suggestions please would be really appreciated on this

    Any pics?

    Can't help you with the trophy shield as I've never done one, but I'm sure one of the others will be along to help you soon!

    Well done, that's where the addiction now starts!!

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    Well done matey, looks like it was a "good shot".
    Was it with your own rifle??

    really pleased, have a silly grin on my face today. I used an estate rifle (Tikka 243.)

    I’ve got a firearms ticket but no deer calibre yet. FEO has advised me to get as many "paid for" stalks under my belt as poss, then do my DSC1 done, then he can see no reason for me not being given a variation on a deer calibre.

    Either screw through the back of the wooden mount into the back of the skull or drill two holes a couple of inches apart then wire the skull to the mount

    Well done Goz , as mereside says, get proof of some booked stalking and then i cant see why they wouldnt allow you a deer calibre.
