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.
