Mule Deer European Mounts
A European mount is a skull with the hide removed and bone bleached white, usually hung on the wall as a way of showing off that trophy. The term European mount is sued because Europe was the first place where these mounts became popular. Before modern taxidermy it was much more difficult to safely and effectively preserve an animal with it’s own skin. Groups of hunters would returned from a hunt with their game and clean the muscle, tissue, and hide off the skulls and leave them out to bleach by mother nature.
