So, I had a friend pass away, he had a dozen or so shoulder mounted deer heads.

No one in family wants them, What could I tell them to do with them. I did tell them many restaurants look for them. As far as selling them, I never see a big market unless they are B&C.

suggestions?

I was given some euro hog mounts and a WT buck shoulder mount from one of my wifes friend that was moving.
Listed the hogs here and Craigs list, they sold quick because I sold them so cheap up

I gave a 9pt head to the dental assistant that works for my dentista. She cried. Said her 2 boys had been wanting one forever. I wrote the story of the hunt and enclosed it. Mason county buck from 1980

You can definitely sell those. Doesn't matter if they are taxidermy specimens or just home done euro mounts. They sell pretty well

I can't say for sure but I would have a hard time selling any of my shoulder mounts I think

In for more info, I have an axis wall ped that I need to get rid of to make some space. How do you go about shipping it if you sell it on ebay?

I've bought some and flipped them on eBay. I charged $50 to ship and put them in large cardboard boxes with wire and foam to support. I underbid the shipping on the two larger mounts and ended up eating about $20 each in shipping on the larger ones but made out in the end. I bought 4 WT shoulder mounts for $100 and sold them for about $1200 total.

That makes sense. I need to measure the mount and see if getting a box that big is an option. I don't really want build a crate but would if the price was right
