    Advice needed munty skull mount

    Hi there, I have mounted roe skulls before so know how to mount a skull basically. I have a munty trophy I want to mount though and am wondering if there is a special type of shield that I can get that will allow the skull to be held away for the shield enough so the canines don't get in the way?

    hope that makes sense?

    I normally just cut a very small amount of the back of the cranium off at the desired angle and then secure the skull with a cavity wall/plaster board type butterfly fixing. Works very effectively.
    Opinions are like arseholes....... we all have them, and most of them stink

    I usually just use a single screw and screw them directly onto the board. Click image for larger version.

    Is that some sort of lacquer you have put on the skulls?

    Some nice bucks you've got too.
