Want This Look in Your Home?
Taxidermy is being used more and more in home décor by people who don’t hunt but love the look that wildlife art brings to a space. But it can be hard to find exactly what you are looking for. Here at Safariworks Taxidermy Sales we want to make that task as easy as possible. This article will highlight some of our best big game taxidermy mounts so that you can achieve the look featured in the picture above or bring your own interior design vision to your home.
This beautiful Caribou shoulder mount has been given our taxidermy quality rating of “Premier.” They do not get much better than this beauty. He has a slight turn of his head to the right similar to the one in the main picture. The antlers on this mount are tall and wide with an outside spread of 50”. The antlers also have a great shovel and bez. The hair is thick and soft throughout. There is a wall hanger on the back and it weighs 29 lbs. so all you need for this one is a single well-anchored heavy duty screw instead of a bolt.
This Moose head taxidermy mount has the head turned to the left slightly and has a great-looking bell. The heavy antlers have a 41” outside spread. The head is in down in semi sneak pose. Making him perfect for spot 4 in the main photograph or to mount in a room that doesn’t have a tall ceiling. This Moose mount features good hair quality with nice, deep coloring throughout. He weighs about 55 lbs. so he will have to be mounted with a well-secured heavy duty bolt.
A Rocky Mountain Elk is a great addition to any room but we chose this particular one because of his similarity to mount 5 in the main photo. He has his head turned to the left showing off a great set of 6 x 6 antlers, which have a 36” outside spread. This monster Elk has great detailing throughout and good thick hair. He hangs from a single well-secured bolt and has a wall hanger attached in the back.
This is a massive 6 x 5 Bull Elk head mount. He is mounted in a natural relaxed position and his large 6 x 5 antlers have great coloring and polished tips. The detailing on this mount is expertly done. You can’t go wrong with this mount whether it is to achieve the look in the main photograph or to just add to your collection.
This Rocky Mountain Elk mount looks like it is screaming at you but it is in fact bugling, which is a series of loud sounds that a bull elk will make to establish dominance. The taxidermy craftsmanship on this mount is excellent. He is sporting a set of 6 x 6 antlers with a large drop tine. This Elk has a SCI (Safari Club International) score of 375 making him a Gold medal winner. He has a hanger attached on the back and needs to be mounted using a single, well-anchored bolt.
The main photograph shows an Elk mount in position 8 but we thought we would change it up just a bit with this beautiful Peary Caribou taxidermy mount. This magnificent mount is rated “Premier.” It is mounted as a wall pedestal mount to show off the shoulder and its tall dark antlers. This mount has gorgeous thick fur throughout. This mount hangs from a single well-anchored screw using the hanger attached to the back of the mount.

As Daniel E. Schmidt of Deer & Deer Hunting put it, “taxidermy displays are not ‘trophies’ of accomplishment, but rather reverent reminders of blessed days afield for hunters.”
However, there is more to owning a mount than simply hanging it on the wall and leaving it untouched.
When most people think of taxidermy they picture a hunter’s trophy room full of mementos of their past hunts but taxidermy isn’t just for hunters. Taxidermy mounts can add a touch...
