Mounting Bull Horns

I know mounting steer/bull horns is a cadillac thing to do, and I have a friend who has a cadillac and wants to mount the horns on the front. I figured I would as on the jeep forum, because it is where you find the smartest people(since they choose to drive a jeep ). Drilling into the hood is not an option. How should the horns be mounted?I was thinking magnets, but how can I attach them to the block the horns are mounted on?and where can i find such strong magnets?

Thanks

Problem solved.

If women can have a closet full of shoes, I can have a safe full of guns.

Search ebay for rare earth neodymium magnets, but be careful, the big ones are dangerously strong, seriously.

A 2" square cube has a pull force of 441.8lbs against 1" thick steel plate., you stick it to your fridge, it's permanent.

Is your friend the corrupt commisioner of a rural southern county?

Im thinking ill go with YJames50's idea And no she has no relation to boss hogg. She says it would have to be with magnets, so ill look into those neodymium magnets. Anyother magnets that aren't as power fully, but would still hold them onto the hood? And thanks for the responses

Has anybody done this since the last posting? I'm fixing to get a JK in about a month and I'm thinking about mounting some bull horns. I like the idea of mounting them on the front bumper, except that's not quite ideal for wheeling. This may sound a little out there, but what about mounting them on one of those wind deflectors that connect to a roof rack right above the windshield? I know that's expensive just to mount some horns, but I'm curious what y'all think.
