Ummmmm.... Where are you

Ummmmm.... Where are you from, what do you have, what do you want, etc.  Way to much left out of your post to take seriously.

Depending on where you are

Depending on where you are located at try a home design shop.  Where I am at here in Colorado good big game heads will bring a premium price for those who do not want to go out and shoot one themselves.

If it were me I would try a

If it were me I would try a local auction house that has sporting good auctions. Hessneys in Geneva NY has them all the time and he does a great job. Good luck.

Sportsman's auctions are the answer

A local auction house has a monthly sportsman's auction here in upstate New York (near Saratoga Springs) taxidermy brings good money.  I've seen mounted bass sell for $300.  I have no idea why.  Dear heads go for $150 and up depending on the rack. African game sells for $300-$3000 depending on what it is and how good the mount is.  If you google "Talk of the Town Auction" you can find them.  I bet similar events in urban areas would bring top dollar. 

You could also try contacting Gander Mountain or Cabelas - if they are opening a new store they might e very interested in acquiring some mounts.  Good luck!  Please report back and Let us know how you make out.

Bass Pro

Actually being from Maryland I would contact the Bass Pro Shop in Baltimore (or that area?) and see if they would be willing to buy them.

Then big stores like Cabelas

Then big stores like Cabelas and Basspro are good ideas but I doubt they will give the good money like the auctions do. Many guys will donate thier mounts for dispaly till they want them back, no money needed for the store.

Like Critter said some of the palces around here close to Aspen would give some really good prices just so they could display them and brag or show off. Being rich up there has certain requirements.

I have no desire to own anything that I did not hunt myself, or someone else in my family.
