Deer Antler mounting kits seem to have been a forgotten art until recent years. For the past 30 years, all that was commercially available were the old-fashioned, laminated particle board plaques with red or green velvet covered styrofoam antler covers. While those have a special place in my heart, it’s nice to have a little variety in the trophy room, right? Thanks to Mountain Mike’s Reproductions, there are a variety of easy, affordable, great looking options in deer antler mounting kits for the do it yourselfer.
