We can all name our classic cabin accessories: Adirondack chair, enamelware coffee pot, camp blanket and wood stove. But what about the moose head on the wall? Assuming you’d rather buy your trophy already mounted than go hunting or drive around Maine hoping to eventually hit a moose with your car (or vice-versa), here are some outfits that can complete your log home decor.
1. Bill’s Bear Rugs & TaxidermyBill’s Bear Rugs & Taxidermy, located in New York’s Adirondack Mountains, customizes each moose mount according to its location and the measurements of the mount area “so that it becomes an enhancement to the room rather than an overpowering feature.” The mounts are processed at, or near, the point of harvest. They have excellent bells (beards) and removable antlers for shipping and storage convenience. billsbearrugs.com
2. Colorado’s The Mad MooseColorado’s The Mad Moose specializes in mountain-lodge furnishings. It works with several North American taxidermists to deliver Alaskan moose head mounts. madmoose.com
