European Deer Mount


The history of the European deer mount dates back to the early days of hunting. Hunters would often mount the skulls of the deer they killed as a way to display their trophies and to show their appreciation for the animal. European deer mounts became increasingly popular in the 19th century, as hunting became more popular and as taxidermy techniques improved.

In the early days, European deer mounts were often created using a method called "boiling." In this method, the skull of the deer would be boiled in water until the flesh and tissue were removed. The skull would then be bleached and mounted on a plaque or wall mount.

In the late 19th century, a new method of creating European deer mounts was developed using dermestid beetles. These beetles are known for their ability to eat flesh and tissue, and they can be used to clean the skull of a deer without damaging the antlers. This method is now the most common way to create European deer mounts.

European deer mounts are still popular today, and they are a popular choice for hunters and nature enthusiasts. They can be a beautiful and unique way to display a deer's antlers and skull, and they can be a great addition to any home or office.
