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.

Hang With a Plaque

For a classic look, you can mount your elk skull on a wooden plaque. These plaques come in an array of styles including rustic or barn planks. For a more polished finish, you can have your plaque stained in oak, cherry or walnut. You can also mount your skull on a carved board which comes in a variety of interesting shapes and designs. To customize your mount,  have an engraved plate attached to your plaque to commemorate your special hunting date.

Hang Without a Plaque

Hang your elk skull mount on a wall using a hanger or skull hooker. Made of steel, these handy mechanisms are sturdy and strong. They make it really easy to hang your skull straight and upright without the need for mounting hardware. Hanging your mount without a plaque will give it a more contemporary flair. 

Standing Mount

Along with wall mounting, you can mount your skull on a stand for placement on a fireplace mantle or end table. Choose from a wooden or stone base to complement your aesthetic.

We are careful to preserve your trophy in a way that respects the animal. Call our office in advance so that we can give you instructions on how to properly take care of your elk until you can get it to us. This is a crucial part of ensuring your trophy looks amazing.
