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.
I am from Southern Maryland. I have alot of Deer mounts, elk, zebra, gazelle, bear, kudu, leopard, baboon, etc. I havent put a price on anything yet, because Im just trying to figure out my options first.
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.
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.
What does "gauge" mean anyway? As used here gauge means the number of round lead balls the same diameter as the inside of the barrel (aka the bore) that it would take to weigh one pound. It takes 12 lead balls the same diameter as a 12 gauge barrel to weigh a pound. The smaller 20 gauge would require 20 balls of that barrel diameter. The larger bore 12 gauge would require 12 lead balls of the bore diameter to weigh one pound.
In general the number of pellets in a shotgun shell...
