Skull Hooker: A Simple Way to Display Your Buck

posted on November 19, 2014

The Skull Hooker is an easy do-it-yourself way to show off this year's giant buck. With nothing more than a screwdriver, you can get a European mount on the wall, just in time for those wonderful holiday family visits.

There will be no more waiting on a taxidermist's schedule. With the Skull Hooker European skull mounting bracket, all you need to do is make the shot. Of course, you still have to clean your skull. While you can send it off to the taxidermist for this, there are any number of products and videos available online to walk you through this simple process. My method is to remove everything I can, then boil that baby.

Once you've got a clean mount, you're about five minutes away from full display.

Find a stud in your wall where you'd like your trophy to hang—preferably someplace where lots of people can see it. Then follow the instructions to mount the bracket using the two screws provided. Next, attach the adjustable prong to the mounting arm using the top hole.

The next step is figuring out the angle that you'd like the skull to hang. Simply insert the prong into the back of the skull, where the spinal cord would be, and adjust until the proper angle is determined. Once you find it, remove your skull and use the screw to tighten the prong to the mounting arm.

Place the bracket on the wall plaque, and top it with that heavy horned 10-pointer! You can tweak the angle and even rotate the arm if needed.

The Skull Hooker Little Hooker is perfect for whitetails and other small to mid-size game. The Big Hooker also available if you've got larger prey in mind.
