Anyone have suggestions for a good way to ship a set of elk antlers on the skull. IE good place to get big box or crate that won't brake the bank?

Probably need to crate that. Last set we had was done like that.

I built a crate for mine. 2x2's and 1/4" plywood. Bubble wrap everything and duck tape it to the box.

The person doing my head in Utah said that he is going to build a crate for mine Derrick. He also detaches the horns so that is won't be WAY big.

It's may be just easier to spilt the cap. Unless you want a euro, then not so much

Most big bull mounts I have seen have the antlers slip or thread on. Makes the mount much smaller for transport. A crate probably still a good idea.
