Got a few of these guys put back together last week. The freeze dried velvet looks really sweet on the euros, and is a great option if you don't have room for a shoulder mount. You can kind of tell from the pictures, but by freeze drying the antlers, I get hardly zero shrinkage in the tips of the antlers and absolutely no color loss from the velvet. If you want your antlers to look like they did when you shot the animal, freeze drying the velvet is the only way to go

Very nice! I've always wondered how that would look. I'm guessing you remove the antlers before freeze drying?
