Both new and pre-owned mounts come from real kills and preserved hides. These trophy elk mounts consist of European elk, mule deer, whitetail deer, and Colorado elk to name a few.

Mounts are great for wall spaces, the theme of a cabin, or for an entertainment room where you want to have more character.Features to consider
Affordable elk mounts are finished and made with some of these considerations:
- Landscaping: Grasses and stones are placed unto mounts to create backdrops. The result is a recreation of the wild environment the animal came from.
- Long-lasting: The animal hide and skull have already been cleaned and dried. There’s nothing left to decay, and the outer surfaces have been treated for that reason.
- Wild game: Your options consist of true quadrupeds, and this results in a life-like impressions of the elk. You’ll see these animals with real, live positions in still motion.
- Walnut mounts: Walnut is an option used to secure the animal’s head to and to attach to the wall. Oak is another option that gives you a lighter backdrop whereas walnut is dark and grainy.
- Bulls and cows: Males and females are both available. Consider that the bulls are larger and use more space than cows.
Finished elk mounts offer you options including:
- Wood plaques: The plaque takes on shapes such as the rounded, the rectangle, the “game-head,” the “European,” and the oval.
- Shoulder mounts: These mounts only show the animal from the head down to the shoulder.
- Antler pairs: Antlers, as provided without the skull and body, are produced for a natural feel that you don’t need much space for.
- Skulls: Skulls are cleaned and only offer you the bone of the animal with the option of the antlers also.
- Trophy status: Some mounts are true trophy catches marked with 10 or more points on the antlers, larger than average sizes, and rare species.
