I've done one but I'm in for an easier/quicker way.

Alright, Deer blinds have been constructed with the help of my boys, homework finished and dinner stuff put away.

Now let's get to what this thread is all about, Doing your own European Mount.

You need to start with a deer head (sorry, this one has no ears. My boys woke me up Sunday and asked "if they could each have an ear"? I was so tired, I said "Sure", thinking they would wait till I got up. Lesson learned. PAY ATTENTION TO DETAILS [biglaugh]

Then you need the essentials. A turkey deep fryer, a deep pot that you would cook a turkey in and some borax. A knife is a given tool. I used to deep fry turkeys and even a few roasts a year till I realized how bad it was for our health, I'm sure glad I didn't throw it away...

Your goal in this step is to remove every bit of anything you can with your knife. Keep a sharpener handy, the bone, fat and gristle will wear on a knife. You also need to stick something in the brain cavity to scramble the brains. Use anything you have available, I used my finger. It was right there. Notice the plastic bag on the ground. You will want one handy to throw all that is cut off into. This is after about 20 minutes of knife, and finger work...

This tool was AMAZINGLY helpful. It is a nozzle that gets screwed onto your garden hose to fill up water balloons. It also works perfect as a low pressure power washer. Make sure you have eye protection, because it splashes everywhere. Remember when you scrambled the brains? Here is where you can flush them out now...

Mike in your list of essentials you forgot to include the "understanding wife" [bigsmyl]

Not to hijack the thread Mike but I did all of mine in the winter, so as not to offend the neighbors.

Take your pot, fill it with water and add 1-2 cups of borax (I did 2 cups). Mix it up well, and now your ready to put your deer head into the pot. Remember you DO NOT want any part of the antlers in the water. They WILL turn white from the Borax...

To answer both your questions, I will get to the understanding wife in a few minutes Rick, and I honestly want my neighbors to see me doing this stuff. That's why I did it in the front yard. Notice the old grill that I converted to a work bench? I leave it behind the house in the swamp, till I need it, then wheel it to the front to do my work. The Neighbors tend to leave me alone.

A piece of coat hanger mounted in a cordless drill makes a good brain scrambler.

Now to get back on track. Bring your pot to a boil using the turkey fryer. Once the water starts to boil, reduce the heat to a nice simmer. You DO NOT want your water to be at a rolling boil. Think of it as making a nice stew (albeit a stinky one). Your set up will look something like this...

I guess a coat hanger would work, but I'm not afraid to get a little dirty. It washes off, plus you get to do everything by hand and not OVER DO something with power tools. Remember, it is not about how fast something can get done, it's about getting it done with minimal amout of damage.

Now, find yourself something to do for 1 1/2 hrs while your "Stew" is simmering. I actually did a rare thing for me. I grabbed a chair and a few cups of coffee and enjoyed the day, and some time with my little guys. They got to tell me all kinds of stories and explained to me what and how they wanted to go hunting for.
