    Nice. I was gonna try to make my own also but never could come up with anything to cover the base. What did you use?

    Those are very nice. I made one for a young man in Texas, cut out the State on wood and then bought a can of Spray paint that when it drys it has the color and texture of stone. Made a real nice Plaque, I mounted it on 2 horse shoes as the base and welded a 1/4" flatstock to the shoes connecting the Plaque at the back for a Pedestal Mount. John

    haha. :thumb: Its not sharp. I took sandpaper to it and the blades are now duller than a butter knife and the point duller than a ball point pen. haha Its the head I killed that deer with so thought it was cool to save it. :thumb:

    Nice idea. I have been fortunate enough to have a father in law that is pretty good with wood and he makes plaques shaped like the outline of the state where I shot the deer for me. So far I have TX, NM, AR, CO, WY so just 45 more to go.
