Skull Hooker Review – Great Product!

The Skull hooker is one of my favorite products I’ve discovered in 2012. It is simply the best way to display your european mounts. Whether that be whitetail deer, mule deer, caribou, elk – you name it – this awesome little european mount display with allow you to display your european mount in a classy way that will give maximum respect to the animal and look super in any home, cabin or man cave. Let’s take a look at my Skull Hooker review. 

 How I used it

Some of you may remember – my grandfather had a once in a lifetime experience last December. You see – he shot a pair of bucks that were locked together. The deer literally struggled past him while he was on stand. Weird right? For sure. The epic event was something I’ll literally never forget.

But now we are in a conundrum. How in the world do you display 20 pounds of (beautiful) whitetail antler mess? I’ll tell you how – the Skull Hooker. I came across this product via a mail order catalog (you know the ones you automatically recycle without looking at them). Well it just so happened on the day I got this catalog, I had to visit the porcelin throne once I got home. So naturally like any self respecting man – I took a magazine. I found the Skull Hooker, did my business and then got my hands on one. Come to find out this is the best way to mount locked whitetail bucks!

The Little Skull Hooker is the one I got is primarily for whitetails and antelope – the Big Skull Hooker is for bigger animals such as elk, and caribou. The Little Skull Hooker handles my grandfathers antlered mess wonderfully. (See the videos at the bottom of this page)

Benefits

Forever is a long time. When you nail, glue or screw you animals skull to a piece of wood – it will never look the same. With the skull hooker, you can take on and off any european mount, and never have to put a nail, screw or glue in it or on it. It is clearly the least intrusive way to display your european mounts. So benefit number 1 – not having to modify your mount.

It swivels. How cool is that? Any deer has a “strong” side that would look best with that side shown off. The Skull Hooker swivels so that you can do that. It also helps fit it into a certain space – just awesome. Benefit number 2 – unmatched functionality.

Adjustable. This goes along with the swiveling. It also has a little prong (the part that actually goes in the skull) that can be moved up and down. The benefits of this is to position the skull more up or down. You can change it either way to best show off your mount.

Easy and Simple to Install. Even a caveman can do it! But seriously – I installed this mount in < 2 minutes. You just simply install the base to your desired location and then set the swiveling arm in it – then insert the little prong into the back hole of your european mount. Boom! The best looking mount you’ve ever seen.

Not to mention the simple fact that european mounts are a great way to display your trophies. They are much cheaper, take up less space, and you can enjoy them much quicker than if you send if off to the taxidermist. Plus with the Skull Hooker – you can display multiple european mounts on one single Skull Hooker.

How to do/make a european mount

You can make a european mount ready for your Skull Hooker a number of ways:

Beetles – that is how we had the deer in the video done. You put them in a tank of beetles, and they eat away the skin and meat. Works very well.

Lake and/or Pond – You tie up the antlers and skull to a stake or dock, and the fish, turtles, leeches ect. eat away the head carcass to the bone.

Boil – You can also boil the skull and scrape away the meat and skin. This is the quickest way to achieve the european skull mount, but also the most labor intensive.

Overall

You can’t go wrong with this. Honestly. You will flipping love this product. Durable, simple and effective. What isn’t to love! I expect to own many more of these in the future! The Skull Hooker website has complete video instructions on their website, and the folks are extremely pleasant to deal with. Like I said – it is simply the best way to make a european mount.
