    Wonfderful old boar. And truly wild rather than having been bred on some estate.

    I remember doing lots of silly things when I was young! Some of them involved hunting.

    yes, they do.
    Thanks for your words, Jerome.
    Digging my four-legged huntingfriends' graves in the forest, is one of the most bitter moments in my life.

    Sorry to hear this Foxi.

    one of the tragedies of life is the length of dogs lives.

    My condolences for your loss Foxi. There are few things as bad as staring into an empty dog cradle...

    Trophy processing in Corona times


    das war er.jpg

    Here he lies, the king of the woods. I once shot him as a young guy with my 700 Remington in 7mm Remm Mag,left hand system and sold the gun without need. Stupid as i can be :(

    I don't hang all the trophies I take in the hunt.
    Some I give away to friends, bring them to my parental home or - shame on me - I just throw them away.
    For decades this trophy has led a stepmotherly life and weathered in various places and now for many years on my balcony. I have never been able to give this deer trophy away, because it is my first "real" deer stag that I was allowed to shoot, decades ago.
    All the other red deer before were so-called "Hegeabschüsse".
    Anglo-Americans would call them kitchenshots.
    I shot them almost all with my beloved Heym bolt action in 6,5 x57.

    We have a Corona curfew in Bayern,Germany and therefore more time than usual. Before the curfew, my wife and I decided to whitewash our flat.
    I bought white paint and accessories in time,short before the hardware stores were closed.

    This stag trophy has looked at me for years complaining and often told me that it was disrespectful of me to allow it to weather, when it once brought me so much joy and hunter pride.

    Before

    So I repainted the skull with the rest of the house paint (I'm not squeamish about that, taxidermists may forgive me), and repainted the rods with potassium permanganate. You can get the stuff for a few cents in any pharmacy.

    It is important to cover the whitewashed skull well with plastic bags, you can't get rid of it and the luminosity of these Kalium stains is considerable.
    A teaspoonful of potassium mixed with water is overabundant and then the liquid is applied with a brush and one must be careful that no drops form on the trophy, which are wiped off with Kleenex.

    I think the result is not so bad and all the experiences of this hunt were brought back from memory during the work.
    I also promised to treat the deer with more respect than before.
    "Hunters are crazy", my wife said shaking her head, when she heard my promise :)

    Looks god! I once shot a young stag just a few days into the season. He was still in velvet but limping badly. After I boiled and cleaned the skull, I used green walnuts and rubbed them onto the antlers, which worked just fine. A little fine sandpaper afterwards for the pearling and it looks just as if he was harvested "normally".

    Foxi, I read with sadness on your loss of Brezel your little friend. I am a lover of dogs and must admit tears welled up in my eyes when I read your report. I have a little friend too and cherish the too few days being together.
    On a more cheerful note, I really like how you restored your trophy!
