    Default Disposal of trophies

    i have a distant relative who has passed away leaving several very good trophies in his house that the family will want to get rid of. 2 very big Elk, 2 very big Caribou and several really nice deer (Cous and Mulies). Any one know of any way the family can realize a few dollars from these? The family is NOT by any means well off and could use the money to help with burial expenses as both the mother and father passed away within 1 month of each other.

    Wish I could help you.
    Only places I have seen are auction houses.

    There are a few businesses that do sell trophy at auction one that i know of is out of Texas that i receive blips from and the other was out of North Dakota.

    I am sure that a search should bring up some phone numbers for them to contact.

    Now if the Animals mounts are big as you suggest they could contact Cabelas, and Bass Pro and others as they do purchase trophy's for there stores.

    I will ditto Bob on Lolli Bros. In most of their sales they will have entire tropy rooms for sale. Hundreds of trophies in some of their sales. They will have interior decorators there for restraurants etc. buying the trophies.

    I would have suggested Lolli as well but for a limited number of trophies with shipping fees and auction commission....they probably won't come out ahead enough to make it worth while.
