5 Great European Skull Mount Kits

European Skull Mount

For some hunters, a European skull mount is the focal point of their living room.

Many hunters like antler mounts and taxidermy mounts to show off their love for hunting. European mounts actually aren't too expensive. If you feel sentimental value for a successful hunting trip, a mount kit is what you need to preserve your memory.

It's not everyone's style, but surely now you've thought about keeping a whitetail deer's antlers. This is how to preserve a memory, especially if your partner's unsure about a fully-stuffed shoulder mount. It's cheaper than getting something intricate from a taxidermist, and European mounts are fairly easy to create on your own.

We won't go into detail about the process in this post (we do in others), but instead we'll focus on the last step: finding a mounting kit that will hang it up on the wall exactly the way you intended.

In fact, many skull mounting kits come with all the hardware you need to finish off your trophy display. Here's a selection of some of the best.

1. Walnut Hollow Solid-Oak Skull Mount Kit

This skull mounting kit from Cabela's is under $20. It's perfect for whitetail deer, antelope, sheep, and more. You can hang it on your wall, or use the extra oak wood pieces and leave it on a flat surface (a table or shelf) for display.

2. Mountain Mike's European Deer Skull-Mounting Kit

Mountain Mike's is a highly reviewed brand for skull mounting kits. You don't have to worry about boiling and bleaching the skull with this kit. It's recommended to use it with whitetail and mule deer antlers; any bigger, and it will begin to look oddly proportioned and could be a topple risk.

3. Walnut Hollow Country Euro Skull Mounting Kit

Another great mounting kit from Walnut Hollow is available at Walmart. It takes three easy steps to put the European skull kit together: Find a wall stud, screw the wall bracket into the wall, cover the wood screw, then mount your skull. The bracket is made from steel, so it will hold your trophy safely.

4. Skull Hooker Bone Bracket European Trophy Mount

Skull Hooker's mount kit is for strictly antlers, but can rotate up to 180 degrees for the perfect angle. This specific kit is for smaller animals, but if you're looking to show off your elk and moose skulls, go with an XXL large mount.

5. Skull Hooker Trophy Tree European Trophy Mount

I had to save the best for last. Have you ever seen anything like this? Something's telling me I just gave someone an idea for a Christmas tree. This Euro mount from Skull Hooker has five brackets, meaning five places to put a skull. Now if you have a good season, you can fill this entire thing up. It's perfect for home offices, living rooms, and bedrooms, as well as folks who don't want to drill into their walls.

Mementos from a hunting trip hold sentimental value, and are worth saving, displaying, and being a part of you. Besides reliving the moment on another hunting trip, the next best way to remember your trophy is to hang it up.
