Going on my first moose hunt in October and if I get one would like to have it mounted; problem is it wouldn't fit in my current place or office.

If I bring the horns back with me(we're driving up there); would you guys recommend having the hide tanned in Canada and then shipped to me so I can have it mounted when I get a place that it fits?

Also whats a ballpark cost of having a moose shoulder mounted?

I'd tan the hide there, you dont want to chance the hide getting warm and slipping. If you are worried about getting it through doorways then go with detachable antlers on your mount.

Ballpark cost on a moose mount will be $1200-1500. You are right - they need lots of room. Basically think size of a longhorn steer.

I didn't do detachable antlers and didn't have any doorway issues. But would probably help in setup process. Took 3 of us to put mine on the wall (kinda high on the wall) - I remember thinking if I didn't hit the bolt in the wall the first time as we lifted it we might be in trouble. smile

Should go without saying, but find a stud and put your anchor in deep.

Wyoming Shiras. Only 40" spread (he had an upswept "Mercury's heel" rack). 19 points and very nice palms all around. Was glad to see him. smile

I drove to alberta and killed a bull last winter. We pulled a 12ft trailer with a box freezer and generator on it, as well as about 6 Yeti's. Put the hide in the freezer, meat in cooler and ran the generator the entire drive home. Hide stayed frozen solid all the way back to Tx

I went with a skull mount on mine due to a lack of room in my house. Looks pretty impressive. If you go with the skull mount you don't have to worry about the hide. I drove up to Canada for mine and had quite the load with the skull/ horns and the meat. By the way moose meat is exceptional.
