If you are looking for an economical but decorative way to preserve your trophy, the skull mount might be the best option for you. Also known as a European or western skull mount, this taxidermy method keeps only the skull of the animal along with its antlers or horns as a keepsake. Consequently, it will not take up lots of room making it ideal for apartments and tiny offices. Additionally, skull mounting is a much quicker process than most other taxidermy services. So if you are in a hurry to have your beautiful trophy home, let us work with you to design the perfect skull mount for your space.
Wildlife Recapture Taxidermy can create a skull mount out of any animal. We have worked with animals from all over the world including deer, antelope and moose. Along with turning your trophy into a lasting memory such as an elk skull mount, we can also create a skull mount in tribute to your beloved cat or dog.
With European mounting, your skull will be carefully displayed on a wooden plaque to be either hung or placed on a table or desk. Choose a wooden plaque made of oak, cherry or walnut to complement your décor. We can also customize your mount to give it a unique and one-of-a-kind look. Some ideas might include special lighting, custom dipping or an engraved name plate.
Our western skull mounts are museum quality and crafted to keep its color and clarity for years to come. We begin by cleaning and then whitening the skull for safe preservation. Next, we will design your mount or backboard to fit on your wall or table. A straight wall mount is also possible for a simpler and clean look. Finally, your skull is securely anchored to the plaque for easy hanging or placement.
A Montana Taxidermy, Wildlife Recapture is convenient located off of MT-37 in Libby. If you would like a European style mount for your wall décor, we have both deer and elk mounts for sale in our showroom.
