Same house.  It is all necessary to be shown while selling?

You can see a YouTube video of Buck the Talking Deer here.  It’s embarrassing.  It sings “Rawhide.”

Found one more.  Mesa, Arizona.

    Welcome to our weekly meeting of Stuffed Anonymous.
    Today’s topic is on Finding Your Outer Self When Your Inner Self Is Missing.
    Bob & Marge, from our Canadian Moose chapter, will provide the refreshments.
    Buck, as usual, will provide the entertainment.

    I’ve always hated the look of dead animal heads sticking out of a wall. I’d run, not walk, out of these homes.

    Time to remove the personal items. Makes me itch just looking at these pictures.
    @Maria - Love it.

    Was the skull on the right allowed to decompose on the wall?

    Some years ago,the house next door to me didn’t sell for over a year. It was because of all the stuffed animals! I talked to three people who looked at the house and didn’t buy because they felt “creepy” in there. It was a perfectly lovely 4 BR home aside from the animals. The house sold when the owners moved and took their “stuff”.

    People still do this? I thought we evolved beyond it.

    It must depend upon the area. Here, if you have mounts on your wall, at least you are not a felon.
    (Felons cannot hunt or posses firearms.)
    Mounts are just part of the furniture.
    I understand if the house is in a big city, people will not understand the display.

    Big game mounts and hunting are expensive and the homes that they are in, look well maintained. So unless the mounts go with the home, just ignore them. (They are easily damaged if taken down and stored on the floor/ground)

    @giggty, the skull and horns is call a ‘European mount’
