Here is an idea I thought your readers might like.
For several years, I have made plaques for my deer antlers from old barn wood. Several years ago, I discovered old fur stretchers in the barn. I constructed these fur drying boards during the early 1950s.
My dad had saved my boards for me, but I realized they were shaped wrong for today’s fur market. I decided to blend two of my loves together, trapping and deer hunting.
Seeing the antlers mounted on my old fur boards brings back many happy memories of my younger days.
I am 65 years old and I still trap every day of our season.
