Thinking of buying some old mounts

Hey guys I was wondering if i could get your opinion on something. Friend of mine who was a lifelong hunter is moving to arizona and selling off a good portion of his stuff. In his basement he has two rams heads mounted and a mountain lion pelt. Im interested in them just because thats probably two things i may never get the opportunity to hunt. They are in pretty good condition but i have no clue what to offer him. Any ballpark figures?

Re: Thinking of buying some old mounts

well all depends on what he paid originally of course. mounts dont really accrue value like a sports card.
the species itself has no value to you because it holds no specific memories. only has value due to the decoration itself at this point, and that can only be determined by the individual who is willing to pay cash for it.

He never said it would be easy;
He only said it would be worth it!

Re: Thinking of buying some old mounts

A good price can only be determined by you. What you are willing to pay and be happy with the purchase is key. To someone that has no desire for the products might feel a specific price for a piece is too high but for someone that is interested there is more value.

TributeArcher,
I don't think that applies here. Read the first line..."Wildlife lawfully taken in this commonwealth"....

Obviously, neither the rams or the mountain lion were taken in PA.

Re: Thinking of buying some old mounts

how many people obey traffic signs, speed limits, etc?

he was simply pointing out that it may be a violation. let the buyer decide whether the risk is worth taking.

I love people like you who tear someone down for making another person aware of THE RIGHT THING TO DO. Too many cowboys like you in this world who just do what they want regardless of the law.
