North American Mounts: General

White-tailed Deer


Our traditional White-tailed Deer Head mount is the quintessential essence of lodge décor throughout the history of interior design in America. Our skilled craftsmen are able to craft you White-tailed Deer Head Mount in any pose necessary for your design needs, as each taxidermy mount is hand mounted in our studio here in the U.S.A. 

White-tailed deer, the smallest members of the North American deer family, are found from southern Canada to South America. In the heat of summer they typically inhabit fields and meadows using clumps of broad-leaved and coniferous forests for shade. During the winter they generally keep to forests, preferring coniferous stands that provide shelter from the harsh elements.

Adult white-tails have reddish-brown coats in summer which fade to a duller grayish-brown in winter. Male deer, called bucks, are easily recognizable in the summer and fall by their prominent set of antlers, which are grown annually and fall off in the winter. Only the bucks grow antlers, which bear a number of tines, or sharp points. During the mating season, also called the rut, bucks fight over territory by using their antlers in sparring matches.


Perfect for over your fireplace mantle or on a wall in your lodge, this classical taxidermy mount is guaranteed to provide you luxury décor for many years. Please keep in mind because this is a natural product, no two mounts are exactly the same, making each one a unique and distinctive work of art.
