I'm heading up from Dallas to hunt (archery) caribou in 4 days. I've never been to Alaska and I'm incredibly excited.
I keep reviewing this mental checklist and one item I wasn't exactly sure of was how to bring back the antlers.
If it is indeed a trophy caribou, I will want to get a shoulder mount once back in Texas. If it is an average bou, I would like to just do the european mount myself (as I do all my own deer, elk, bear, etc.)
What is the best way to fly home with my antlers and head intact? Is that even possible? Would I need to split it down the skull and reassemble when I get back?
