If you are a hunter, you most likely enjoy looking at taxidermy. Every hunter I know has some type of taxidermy in their house. Some folks have one or two mounts; others have an entire room or man cave dedicated to animal mounts. Some people have mountain scenes that are covered in mounts. Taxidermy is fun to look at and enjoy, but taxidermy can be expensive and as time passes, so does the quality of the mount.
Over time, the sun shining through a living room window will cause the hair on a deer head to fade. Over time, the eyes will start to crack and in some cases, moths start to feed on mounts. In a few months, a room full of mounts can be destroyed by moths. I have seen it with my own eyes.
One economical alternative to getting a buck mounted is to purchase the CamoBuck. A CamoBuck is a plastic deer head that is decorated in camouflage that won’t fade quickly in the sun because it has UV protection. The CamoBuck is available in several different camouflage patterns. You simply attach your antlers to the top of the head of the CamoBuck and hang the buck on the wall like you would a traditional shoulder mount. Here is what Greg Abbas from A-Way Hunting Products has to say about the CamoBuck. “I like CamoBuck because it is a perfect go between from an expensive shoulder mount and a cheaper European mount. It goes well in a home décor setting, bar, garage, office or man cave. It won’t fall apart with time. It is ALWAYS a conversation piece with guests. I think they are neat looking!”
As Greg said, if there is one thing that the CamoBuck is, it’s a conversation piece. When someone walks into your game room to check out your mounts, the first one they will likely mention is the CamoBuck… if you have one.
Maybe you shot a big buck but he wasn’t big enough to spend hundreds of dollars on to have mounted. Maybe a shoulder mount isn’t in your budget right now. Maybe you want a CamoBuck just because it looks cool. Whatever the case may be, the CamoBuck will look great in any room of the house.
