    Default Looking for Trophy Mounts for a Military Building

    Here is an intresting Question for anyone out there.... Does anyone have or know anyone willing to donate some nice size trophy mounts to be put on display in the United States Army Reserve Center Located on Fort Richardson? We have a few already but would really like to decorate it with even more of an Alaskan theme.

    Here is what we have so far:
    Brown Bear, Polar Bear, Bison, Caribou.

    We would love to have some Alaskan fish, Moose, Sheep, Goat, Brown Bear, Alaskan deer, Or maybe even some birds native to Alaska.

    Pleasee send me a PM here or call me on my Cell phone if you have any ideas.

    You might try talking to some of the local taxidermist. A lot of people pay in full for work on their animals and never pick them up.

    One of the buildings on Ft Rich had a "wildlife museum" for many years. I think the mounts were stored or given back to owners during a renovation. The Post historian or Protocol office may have some record of what happened to the items. If so, maybe they can let you display some of those.

    Yep, and the "Swank" Ram used to be there, is it back with the family now?
