I would take a piece of plywood and paint it black. Then paint a huge upside-down star on it. Mount the skull in the center. Then mount it in your front yard where everybody can see it.

That's a toughie. I believe that they sometimes use some sort of "straps" that go around part of the eye sockets and onto a board. Could be wrong. Other than doing somethign like that (withzipties), I'd say some sort of glue on a board.

nope, fireplace. Just want the bare skull on the wall. It's an 8 pointer with good 3 foot spread. Guy on the side of the highway in NM was selling them. Got it at a great price, about 1/4 of the cost to actually hunt one.

if its the skull withe the antlers on it just take a peice of leather and tie it at the lowest point on one antler and then tie it to the other side you should be abile to hang it off of that
