Thats a very nice mount and worth every penny is my guess
Blessed be the sheeple for they shall inherit bugger all...
Depends how desperate you are to shoot a Gold medal.
I have known people who would pay £2-3K to shoot a medal like that inc the mount.
There's other people on here who wouldn't pay a thing as there not interested in the bones......as you can't eat them.
“Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama
I only shoot cull animals as I love the stalk, then the shot. Plus I can't afford to!, but I think you'd be asked £500+ also the outing fee on top. Then your shoulder mount must have cost a few bob too? And what a cracking mount it is, well done anyway.
If it was a good stalk and I shot it then it would be priceless if I was asked to put a value on a mount shot by some one else then to me it would be worthless. But no doubt some one would by it I sold a few medal heads on Ebay and they did ok. Most of the enquires came from Germany.
selling or what you paid ?
selling a lot less than you paid for the fine buck . buying him and the day ££££££ .we have been out price here in the uk by the fee paying day trippers
Thats why i only do cull now days .
I presume you shot him Hawkeye,then I presume you had him mounted to preserve the memory.
So why sell him?
Unless he wasn't shot by you and you have got him cheaper to sell on to make a £££
Like I say each to their own....
All my medals/trophies remind me of the animal/stalk-not what they are worth......
I have one gold that I was offered £5000.....he is still in the hall,where he will stay....
Each to their own though.
What did it score?
about £7 per kg for the antlers me thinks these days.....
Who was the taxidermist ? That's good work.....
