    One hand holding the antlers and the other using the saw. I'm gernerous with the cut so i can level it off with a belt sander if needed

    Belt sander might be the bit I've always missed!!!! When do you sand it?? Before or after you boil it?? I would of thought it would've been very brittle after??

    cheers

    Afterwards, after its dried out. Just go easy though (not because its brittle but because its v effective at taking it down).

    Before you worry about cutting the head you should think about distributing the quality Sika meat among the folk you know
