    I had a friend that had the misfortue of having his buck mount fall off the wall and bust the rack all up. It wasn't a big buck but decent. Both sides broke off at the head evenly. He gave me the mount.

    I found a nice ten point skull and rack. I have decided to unsew the head to his buck and put my deer antlers on that head. Easier said than done. I worked on if for about two hours and FINALLY got the skull plate out.

    My question is: When I cut the new skull to fit and screw it down, what kind of glue or opoxy should I use to get the hide to stick? What do you use for sewing meterial?

    I have never EVER attempted any taxidermy work, just seemed like the thing to do since its cost free. Any help would be helpfull.

    I'll post pictures of the progress.
