I'm going to use one of those cheapo Walmart shields for this one. I call it my wood buck just to remind me that once the sun goes down, you can't see every twig as well as in the daylight. Am waiting until after the season is over before I create a ruckus with the chainsaw. Anyhoo, some awesome wood creations for mounting. Especially like the African continent ones.

Made this one for single skulls. Not stain or cleared yet though. It is 22" long 15" wide and should work for a smaller skull to hang on wall. Just a smaller one then the shield that stands on a base that I make.

I really like this idea...some leather or flat skin in the middle might look nice too. Very nice!

Yeah, someone creative could do some really cool things with the concept. That's not me though. Perhaps some kind of two tone wood as well?

Regardless, it's one of my favorite pieces.

For sure, a piece of zebra skin would make for a looker.

Hogpatrol - you better put your tag on that! Lol. I had a similar outcome on the back wall of the indoor 3D range building last night. Apparently foam black bear can jump at the last second allowing an arrow to pass under them. Lol

The “Africa” shaped plaques are available from Research Mannikins and probably other companies as well. I saw one that was covered will blue wildebeest hide and the skull over that. It was easy to put together, inexpensive (comparatively) and beautiful

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
