Thread: My self-designed CWD skull mount.

  1. #1

    My self-designed CWD skull mount.

    I've now prepared the CWD from a couple of weeks ago, and mounted the skull in a way I think really shows off the tusks. The good news is that Young Pine Marten didn't howl with terror when he saw it! The tusks aren't yet glued in as they're not due to be measured for another couple of weeks. What do you think? I'm quite proud of it, I haven't seen one done like this before.

    I used to do all mine like that, but have run out of room to have them up (too many shoulder mounts).
    looks smart.
    I also polish the skulls

    I really like that, my preference is for full skulls rather than cut and that looks great.

    Jeez they look huge... Never realised they were that big.
    I can speak in-depth and with great knowledge about most subjects until some bugger who actually knows what he is speaking about opens his gob .

    They're not always that big: this one may earn a silver medal. It's actually less impressive in real life than on the photo. When you see the photo on the wall, you can tell it's just not that big.

    If you do that, when you cut the skull take a line from behind the last molars to the ridge that goes horizontally round the back of the skull. I also had to take a hacksaw to the metal fixing that goes inside the skull because it was intended for roe and was too long and wide to fit correctly to affix the skull at an angle.
