Hey Everyone! To follow up last weeks video about the DIY euro mount, today I did a video on my DIY Euro Hangers that I make for about $2. They are fast, simple and cheap and do the job well! Let me know what you think about the video and if you do anything different for your euros!

All the DIY euro mount hangars seem to leave quite a bit of the hangar itself visible. Anyone ever make something like this?

APauls I actually usually use the smaller L brackets for these and they stay way more hidden in comparison!

I bought a bag of D loop hangers for about $5. Anchored them into the back of an elk skull and they hang just fine. I've had a 5x5 hanging on my fence in NM wind and it hasn't budged. If I can find the bag, I know I'm not going to use them all. Anyone need one or 2 let me know.

Someone here turned me on to these hangers. They had a moose hanging on one of their deck beams.

I use coat hangers. You can make 2 per coat hanger (probably 3). All you need is a pair of needle nose pliers and maybe 2-3 minutes.

lol Ambush. 2nd one looks like a whitie/moose hybrid.

I've actually just used a jigsaw and cut a slit straight up from the brain hole. Screw a round head screw into the wall, and it hangs the same way it does on a skull hooker. Total cost $0. Total time roughly 15 seconds.

I only figured this slot thing out a few years back so you can see the different angle on how they sit vs other skulls that are hung just straight against the wall. The slot ones hang like a skull hooker would, which I much prefer.

Reason I ask about the bracket is the “slit method” won’t work with big heads like elk/moose.

I agree, those look pretty good.
