So...I arrowed a great buck yesterday. Main beam break an inch after the G2 on his right side. My question is this, best recommendations for someone that can do a great job fabricating but doesn’t take forever in the north Texas area?? Not concerned with cost.

It may be to far but I used a place down in Kerrville do mine. They do the repairs using fiberglass and they turned out really well. You can not tell that the tines were repaired...it helped that I had trail cam pics of the bucks to show the tine length and shape of them. They color, stain and even put the texture or beading that was back in to match the rest of the antler. I still have their contact info but not real sure if they are still in business since I have not used them in 16 years now.

Dustin Cade in Royse City has done three for me and always does a great job. Typical turnaround time is about six months. Highly recommend him.

I have been using Alpine Taxidermy in Fort Worth for years. You will be happy with his work and he has a fast turnaround.

Spend the money, typically $650 to $750. May have to drive; but looking at the work for 20 years offsets the cost. I think the eyes give away a good mount.

Damuth in Brady does outstanding repair work.

I took a friend's WT rack with a broken beam there. He sent them several game camera photos and they recreated the broken portion.

Holding it in hand the repaired portion was indistinguishable from the "real" antler. Truly amazing work.
