I did 7 of these mounts last year for myself and others, For the final product I drilled a hole in the base of the skull and put a lag bolt through it. I then made discs out of cedar cutting it so the bark was all around it. Drill a hole in it and fasten the lag bolt with a wing nut

I SHilaked the cedar and mounted it with a 2x2 so it would have an angle off the wall. They all turned out really nice. ill get a pic on here when i have a chance.

I knew a guy with a bansaw and had him cut me some of the cedar discs, I have about 50 + of these discs for future use, if your interesed i may be able to find one for you otherwise the cabelas kit works well too.

Ya beerhunter if you could get some pictures of it that would be great. I like the one cablas has but seeing other ideas is all ways better. Thanks

      Those are quantom blades in that picture and they work great for reopening holes and I never had a problem with it being bad for the blades in fact that ring around the bit on the bottom is to help guide the blade when going through a preexisting hole

      Mine looks like that.  And it does reopen holes, and is sharp.  But, had read in past it was not good for the blade.  A friend indeed has attached a 10" Strikemaster, dual blade to his Eskimo so it does work.  His impressively cuts holes quickly, at angles, etc.  He spears so he does 5 holes side by side , 3 holes deep, then augers side ways to remove in between.  Works well.  Complete hole done, less scooping, in under 10 minutes.   Thanks for all the advice.  Could use something larger than 8" anyway, so may go to 10.  Also will redo back part by toy hauler door, under bunks to a 20" x 5' hole, covered and hinged of course.  May spear, but even if not I love watching the fish and various movements of bait, etc.   Again, thanks for being generous. Wahoo
