    Our Father Tony Karling enjoyed hunting big-game for several years, and read various hunting magazines. Sadly, he passed away in Nov 2008. He collected numerous heads from his hunting days, including one of each: blackbuck, scimitar horned oryx, elk, fallow, pronghorn, boar, etc. The heads are professionally taxidermied. My brother and I are the next of kin and plan to sell these heads, as we cannot keep most of them. Can you please offer some guidance to us in selling the heads? Any information would be helpful, including where might be a good place to post an announcement, a recommended selling price per head, what information a buyer wants to know about the head, etc. I appreciate your help. Thank you! Best wishes, Ann-Kristin (daughter) Erik (son)

    Ann,
    My sympathy, I have no idea but to tell you those mounts are valuable. Keep in dry storage until you receive good information. Best of luck.

      You could check with some of the bigger retailers (Cabelas, Bass Pro shops) but I have heard they don't pay well. Generally, I don't think these go for nearly what was put into them as I have seen several sold at estate auction. You may also want to contact any local hunting outfitters or even throw it up on Craig's list in you area- thats free and local people could come pick up to avoid shipping.
