A few years back when working in Arizona I picked up some elk sheds in hope to use them in the family cabin as decoration. Well that never worked out and they are sitting in the garage now, and a buddy brought up I could sell them to pick up some cash to buy something else more useful.

Well I have no idea on where to start on how or where to sell them and was wondering if anyone on here would have some ideas on how to figure this out


Thanks for your help

Don't you have antler buyers that come by your area every now and then?

Try calling a couple of taxidermists, they may be able to point you in the right direction.

Advertisements in newspapers, posters in sporting goods stores, etc.

Works where I live.

I see mounts and sheds listed on craigslist fairly often, not sure if they ever sell but they are out there to be had.

Some people think they'll get big money for their old sheds or animal mounts. Trouble is usually most of the value is tied up in sentimental value with little actual monetary value. Not many people are going to drop a couple hundred bucks on a set of antlers or mount unless they were the one who shot the animal.

Keep your price reasonable and I'm sure you'll be able to find a buyer assuming they are in good shape. It just may take a little time because its a pretty niche item.

If sheds are $$ this guy is a millionaire. I dropped off a head for European mount and saw the pile. He said that he has a toddler now so the rack pile had to move from the living room to the garage. He said he has a pile just as big in the basement. It was fun to see, he said he logged a ton of miles and it used to be easy to get on private property for shed hunting but now too many people are getting into it now... sound familiar?
