    Halloween? That's been up in my garage full time for at least 10 years now... and you are right. That old plywood stop sign is not shot up.

    Been getting back into it again lately. Found some pretty good deals on ebay I couldn't pass up
    Also got one of those Mountain Mike's plastic skull kits from amazon for these Fallow antlers



    It's a pretty good mold right out of the box this one is the Black Forest type
    Amazon offered me a gift card if I got their debit card so what the heck under $8 shipped in two days
    A little to white for my liking so I used a little very thinned down wood stain "colonial maple" and then rubbed it all down with dirt just plain dirt. Smeared it it in the cracks and niches after scratching them out deeper. I'm happy with it

    Also spruced up the porch wall that I started this thread with

    Just found another one



    Guy at work surveying a ditch told me where to look. Finally got out today and found it
    Down to mostly skeleton but still had to cut it free.
    Haven't really had one with this much matter still on it. Lower jaws still attached and smelled pretty bad
    Soaking it now to soften a little to clean better then boiling.
    Never done that before but plan on using my Weber grill.
    From what I've read it should work
    ...................
    OK so I wound up using the stove kind of smelled like corned beef and cabbage so not horrible

    Road kill or was it shot and the hunter lost it?

    It may have been lost but appeared to be there longer than when hunting season opened so could have gotten hit
    They head to the ditches to cool down from wounds I know, but some guys are thinking that blue tongue virus is showing up around here
    Numbers are down but the ones that are here seem to be pretty big mature bucks not seen for the last few seasons
    Migration maybe? I'm no longer with the surveyors dept but hope to find more on my own once and a while
