What to do with a Cow Moose?

Heading to Maine on a cow moose hunt this fall. Not going to do the head mount on a cow. Saving the hide to make a rug possible the legs for a gun rack. Any other ideas. Possible european mount of skull.

The hooves/legs would make great lamp posts

Dont knock it till you've tried it

Be sure to take quality photos for a nice wood frame to capture the moment. Take enough to be sure you got "the one". This is what I have done with the small bull and cow elk I have taken.

You could get a shoulder pedestal mount with pictures in the back of the pedestal and lots of habitat around it.Like if you found something intereting put it in the habitat.

I'm not so sure I would even save the hide, the fur is pretty coarse. Just save every scrap of meat, it is delicious!!

Catch & release is for guys who don't know how to cook

Re: What to do with a Cow Moose?

If it were me I'd save the hide and have it tanned into leather. Then I'd have the leather made into something nice that would last a lifetime that you could use. That way as long as you use it the rest of your life you'll always remember your moose. I know some people had nice vests made or jackets. I personally always thought some type of backpack/scabbard would be cool. I always wanted a back scabbard that had two straps like a backpack that I could carry a rifle in. Get that made out of moose leather and use it for your big game hunts. I'd love to have something like that when hiking the rockies for elk. You'd have it for generations and could even get a leather worker to customize it with moose tracks or your initials. I think that would be pretty bad [censored].
