I found this nice 8pt deer skull while muzzleloader hunting. Varmints had chewed the tips of a few points but I was able to repair them. I cleaned it up and stained the antlers back to what's normal coloring for deer around here. looks nice on the wall. So whatcha think?

The best thing I've found for bringing some color back to antlers is brown shoe polish.

What did you use to stain them?

Thanks guys. :)

Yep, brown shoe polish Leo. :) It works great and the color matches the natural color of most racks in this area.
