Save Space With An Elk Skull Mount

Save Space With An Elk Skull Mount

Elk season begins in the Fall in states like Colorado, Michigan, Montana, and New Mexico. Whether you are hunting alone or as part of a guided tour, elk hunting can be a really exciting adventure.  Depending upon the state in which you hunt, you can catch a variety of bulls such as an American, Roosevelt or Tule Elk.

A trophy is a great way to capture the memory of your hunting excursion. The elk is a big game animal and makes an impressive trophy for your home, office or cabin. But if your space is limited or your budget tight, you should consider preserving your trophy bull as a skull mount. Also known as a European mount, the elk skull mount showcases both the skull and antlers. However, you can also keep the upper molars, jaw or nose as part of your mount.

Are you planning a deer hunt and want to know how you can preserve and capture the memory of your hunt? Most hunters don’t have the money to invest in a full-body deer or shoulder mount. Additionally, these types of trophies will take up lots of space. Therefore, if you have an apartment or condominium, these mounts may not be feasible. What can you do?

Keep a small trophy to remind you of that adventure. The deer antler mount is small and costs about 10% of a full-body mount. It is also about a 1/3 of the cost of a skull mount.
