    @Clayton: It's not uncommon for people to purchase taxidermy work even if they didn't personally harvest the animal. Many hunters and outdoor enthusiasts appreciate the artistry and craftsmanship that goes into creating a well-done mount. Some may also use taxidermy as a way to celebrate and remember a memorable hunting trip or to showcase their love for wildlife. As long as the taxidermy was obtained legally and ethically, it can be a great addition to your collection. Enjoy your elk shoulder mount!

    I’m a fan of antique taxidermy, the old stuff that looks horrible…

    I have picked them up from estate sales and yard sales if the price was right (cheap). I would use the antlers to make stuff out of. If you look around you can sometimes get them for free.

    I don’t, but I do know people that deal in buying and selling taxidermy.

    Really nice piece. But looking at him head on it kinda looks like he is laughing
