Preserve Your Hunting Memories

Jun 19, 2008
A successful hunt is full of memories, and one of the best ways to preserve these memories is to mount your antlers if you are skilled or lucky enough to harvest a nice buck. Other ways of preserving your hunting memories include a hunting photo album, a special hunting photo mounted on a plaque, a slide show of the favorite hunt pictures, and many other personalized products preserving the special moments of your hunt.

Antlers are true bone and different from horns. Antlers are renewed each year, and with age the antlers increase their size, points and mass. In order for bucks to have quality antlers, they need to live to be at least three years of age or better yet five years. There is an anecdote behind every buck a hunter harvests, and mounting these horns will enhance those memories.

There are several different ways to mount your horns. There is a traditional mount that is essentially the horns and the top half of the deer skull mounted to a plaque. The skull cap is usually covered with leather like fabric and fastened to the mount with screws. A European mount is made up of the entire skull with the horns boiled clean and this complete skull and horns are mounted to a plaque.

A great way to immortalize your hunt is through a good sportsman's photo album. There are wooden, leather and vinyl photo albums that will save your best memories of your hunt for years and generations of new hunters.

One product titled "Forever Hunting Memories" is a distinct way to permanently relish your hunting memories. This product takes a 5" by 7" color print that is mounted on a thick slab of wood. Then the photo is hand painted with an outdoor environment, and epoxy is added to this plaque for everlasting preservation. This is truly a great way to enduringly remember your hunting experience.

The iron buck antler mount is another grand way to create memories of your hunt. You can proudly display your antlers with this exceptional polished steel antler system. By sliding your antlers between the two polished plates and tightening the screws, you can turn your best rack into a work of art.

Another great method to exhibit your hunting rack is through laser engraving. A laser engraved picture plaque is a great way to commemorate your first buck, a trophy buck or your hunting gang. There are several versions of this article on the market. One version is a completely engraved plaque. In another version, you would add your picture to an engraved plaque. All of the methods to relive your hunt are priceless ways to keep the great outdoor traditions in your family.
