    While I never followed thru, Knights sure did some nice work on the ones I saw. He was pretty proud of them too. $$

    Making Repros is EXPENSIVE PERIOD.

    It takes an Extreeme amount of Materials, & a LOT of time to make them right.

    I just reproed a set of 44 inch sheep horns & it has taken every bit of 2 weeks to get the first mold of them. Moose are even more time because we have to make the Molds that come apart in Several sections so we can remove the real antlers twice before we can even get started on pouring the plastic resin.

    If done PROPERLY they will be an EXACT replica of the real ones, If Short cuts are taken there will be LOTS of air bubbles & Many places were it will need fixed due to the mold collapsing or not aligning & all of those fixes will also take time & materials.

    For a Moose ( Especially a Large one ) to be copied you are looking at ATLEAST $1500. & in most cases it could be a LOT more.
