I normally use mechanicals. Since they are not static, the design is critical and not equal across all expand...

Re: camo dip done.. and scored??

Ok...I scored it with better tools and got more realistic results... this is a green score as the 60 day drying period hasn't passed yet...gross was 126 5/8" and netted was 120 2/8".... knew it wasn't a 155 class deer...a trophy to me none the less

Re: camo dip done.. and scored??

Looks good! Do they sell a low gloss version of the dip? it's actually not a dip.. you just use a large tote of water ( warm, not too cold) and use oil based spray paint.. spray the paint ( whatever colors and as many colors as you want) into the water and vary the colors.. once you get a lot of pa...
