Early Season Sitka Blacktail

Man, I sure enjoy reading your posts. Great job as always and thanks for taking us along for another adventure. Beautiful country and heck of some bucks. Well done!
 
Follow up question.....did you preserve the velvet antlers in any way or plan to scrape them clean?
My buddy will mount them up in velvet. Definitely did not scrape them clean. They mount a bunch of early season Whitetail down here that have velvet. He puts them in the freezer for a while and then they soak them in denatured alcohol. It’ll preserve the velvet, pull all the blood out of it. They turn out really great.

This is my sitka Blacktail they mounted from a couple years ago.
