Man nice antlers all, but I really don't see the point of pedestal mounts. Everytime I have seen one I am dissapointed.

Ha, I heard that. If it aint' bigger than what I got already, it gets Euro mounted. You can stack those skull mounts in there.

Thanks.....I am fortunate to have a hunting partner that is also my taxidermist. Never worry when I give him a trophy to work on.
