Thread: Other people's trophies - any value?

    Other people's trophies - any value?

    Do other people's trophies have any sale value, or are they only of "value" to the person who shot the animal? We do very occasionally see skulls / mounts / trophies for sale on here, so presumably they're saleable? Maybe just to hang on pub walls?
    Was just wondering as I have a stack of African trophy heads - massive kudu and buffalo, wildebeast, sable antelope, cheater, etc etc. Not mounted, just skulls. I kind of inherited them. Been kicking around in my workshop for years, and have moved house with the whole lot a few times! Interested to know if they're worth anything.

    They are worth something but a bit of a limited market, my game dealer buys decent Roe trophys so obviously he has a market for them.

    Any of the Sporting Sales at the auction houses are 'stuffed' with them.

    eBay, interior design businesses
    auction houses will shift them but you will feel violated when you get the cheque/bill..

    Well I'm not really that fussed about selling them, to be honest.
    It's just that they're currently in a pile jumbled up with a load of miscellaneous junk, and I thought maybe if they had any value I ought to clean them up a bit and store them properly.
    I suppose I could always hang them up in the ancestral banqueting hall, just to fill the gaps until such time as I get around to shooting my own...
