Going with my son on his first gator hunt next month, looking for ideas on mounts, thinking skull or skull with hide on. Anyone had belts, boots, etc. made. Would love to see pics. Thanks!

Have had several skull mounts done and last year we had a bunch of belts and wallets made.

Same here, skull mount with a guy out west. Super good dude to deal with and cheap! He uses beetles and price includes return shipping.

Danny, Where did you have the wallets and belts done? Thanks!

We used Edgemon Crockett for the belts and wallets. The more you have made, the lower the cost per item so it's hard to say what the exact cost per belt or wallet. Really nice father and son business.

For the skulls we used Southern Skull Works in Chatsworth.

I've also done a few with denatured alcohol and then put in reptile taxidermy eyes and sprayed with polyurethane. I tried doing my own Euro mount, but gator bones have lots of joints and fall apart if you boil them too long or too hot.

White Stag did my skull.
The knife was a custom. I had a piece of my alligator hide used for the inlay in the sheath. 4F7DB380-E6F7-4DE5-BC8C-44E119F1F85A.jpeg 7EA21913-36D4-4119-994A-21A8925CC0DE.jpeg B778D5B9-B22D-4554-B0F2-8235984FB008.jpeg D9AD4C9E-4102-45C6-B80F-291209B9C388.jpeg

Thank you.
Look up Fatfriend Custom knives on Facebook. I’m not sure if his web page is up and running yet. Last I heard he has been putting production on hold due to having many other irons in the fire.
