Bet the hunter died and his wife wanted them out of her house. Should have asked about his guns.

Estate garage sale. Man had a taxidermy business and died 10 years ago. Wife. Died a few months ago. Lots of old mounts. I only wanted the deer. Great sale I bought a lot of old stuff. They were both in their 90s. I paid 20 for total for both mounts. Thanks

If the other mounts were that cheap I would have bought them all.

that wt set has some value as a set. Will need a width measurement and more pics to give you an estimate

The mule deer probably pound price, unless it has been varnished.

If you get down to Moscow and I can see it in person, I will make you an offer.

Too bad the Canadian border is still closed, otherwise Jim should be making a trip north.... smile

Would have liked to have seen what else was at the sale. Bet there was neat stuff and money to be made.

Pretty cool and for 20 bucks you got one heck of a deal. Hard to pass that up.


I'm just happy to be here! Today I'm as young as I'll ever be and and older than I've ever been before!

Send them to the Colorado sale, 7X what you paid at least.

Be sure to factor in shipping costs. It wonít be cheap to adequately package and ship those heads. Just saying........

Definitely bring them to the closest vet clinic and tell them you want to xray your mounts. Film it so we can see their reactions.
