How big is your trophy room and how many mounts do you have on the wall? Which animal was the hardest for you to hunt and what animal have you been dying to hang on the wall next?

I guess I will start with mine:

7 mule deer
3 antelope
1 buffalo
1 full body mountain lion 7' 6"
1 Corsican Ram
1 Churro/Navajo Ram

The hardest was the 7x8 29 inch buck

The animal I would like to get next is a bull elk followed by a bull moose

I have seen slayers trophy room, I have no idea where he will be putting the numerous critters he put down this year. His brother is a 'dermist' and has little time to do 'real' customers critters because of slayers trophies.

Trophy Room??? I have a freezer in the garage, does that count? (it doesn't have much wild game in it at the moment)

I have quite a collection of mallard curlies and pintail pins (couple hundred or so :D ) stuck in the moulding around my reloading / flytying nook in the basement though. :mrgreen:

I have a couple of trophy rooms, here's one I share with friends and family:


Many skulls were carried out to road, some are still out in the woods. Each one with a story.

spread over my house and my parents house.
Shoulder mounts;
1 moose
1 whitetail
1 muley
1 antelope

1 pheasant-cofffe table
1 small mouth bass
1 large mouth bass
1 walleye
1 Muskie chasing a sunfish in a display case
2 european elk
multiple whitetail racks on plaques.

Hardest one? don't know, they were all tough in different ways.
Next one I want on the wall? That is even a tougher question :wink: Mnt Goat, sheep, 350+ Elk, caribou or even an alaskan moose, just depends on what tag I will get next.

My best trophy I can't post a picture of because she is so good lookin and I get mean when guys start cat calling. But she was hands down the hardest to get.

I have never mounted any of my 9 bucks or one bull elk, still persuing the wale hanger with both species.

However I do have a beautiful male wood duck that I shot off a ditch near Peoa back in 1999. To this day most people don't believe I shot it here in Utah but in talking to a biologist he said that was the year EL NINIO threw off alot of migratory paterns and there were othere siteings of Eastern ducks in the state that year.

Next trophy will be a Northern general season heavy 4x4 buck. Or possibly a LE Boulder Mountain bull elk if I get lucky in the draw.

Disgusted, all.
Except Wyogoob and Woollybugger- there's a couple guys I'd like to hunt with.
An exception- a 'Specimen Collection' of the odd and rare. That's cool!

P.S.-Yes, The freezer counts. Good call.

When the #'s hit huntable populations and they're de-listed, you're on!


I'll be making a hat or trimming my elk skin coat with it, though.

GD! So would I. I'm not pursuing them too seriously till I get a horse or mule and a place to keep him, though. 5'10", 135 lbs vs. 5'5", 600+ and a 10 mile drag? hunting solo? Not a HUGE priority right now. Someday.

Well Im sure you can get lucky and get one closer to 10 miles from a road because units like the Wasatch have great road access and when you draw a big bull tag then you find out you have a lot of friends because they come out from all places.
