    You'll have to define "Pretty Nice" Med. will work unless you have a heavy set of antlers They do make a caribou antler form but you have to have the skull.
    PEOPLE SAY I HAVE A.D.D I DON'T UNDERSTA.....OH LOOK A MOOSE !!!

    Talking bou skull

    I 'd go with the medium and then, if there's a difference (smaller), one can build up the pedicles
    to the desired size with bondo or paper mache. Good luck.
    If you like getting kicked by a mule...then you'll "love" shooting my .458.

    They (I think McKenzie) make a European type skull that you can attach the sheds to if you want that type of mount. It is about $90. While I have not done one, they do look nice and this is a good alternative. Good luck. J.

    these are just a couple of nice matched sheds i want to put on a plaque.
    i was looking at the little gimbaled mounts that you set into the antler base with epoxy and have set screws to adjust the angles...
    gonna do the same with the big moose pick-ups i found.

    If your referring to the billet one's that van dykes sell, those are the best for detachable shed mounting, those are the only one's that i use.... Kinda pricey but your paying for the billit that no one's going to even see.....lol..... but for the system you cant go wrong, you can use the med elk set if your doing an antler mount only...
