Review: DIY Hunting Trophy Panel

DIY Hunting Trophy Panel

The Legacy DIY Hunting Trophy Panel

“Old World Style Stole Our Attention”

Is a DIY Hunting Trophy Project waiting for you?  Mia Anstine is a columnist for the Women’s Outdoor News, but shares her love of the outdoors as a guide, outfitter, hunter as well as an archery & firearms instructor.  She also writes for Beretta USA and North American Hunter.


Mia and her daughter Lea jumped at the chance to spend a little mother/daughter tome together.  For this DIY project they chose   to mount one of their beautiful sets of Mule Deer antlers in our decorative Legacy© panel with cover.


Read how it turned out and do one for yourself!

Traditional Antlers vs Artistic Antlers

I am a big fan of traditional antler mounts—I own them.  I am a big fan of artistic endeavors–I am an artist.  I am a big fan of vintage anything—after all, I am a little vintage myself!  Every now and then vintage gets a little too grungie-even for me and needs a little help……..But when is artistic taken too far?  Or not far enough?

A friend sent me the above photo of artistic antlers from her trip to New York over Thanksgiving as well as the one below……. and thanks to Suzie at Urban Country Style she identified the beautiful deer damask paper from Barneby Gates

I like to work with new and vintage antlers and create a custom look – I have worked with fabric on my Black Forest style mounts for clients too- but just a little more traditional in my approach.



I have found that many hunters and designers are looking for an elegant way to display their trophies – I have worked with tartan……

and linen…………


   and monograms…………



   and nail heads…………


 Is there room for creativity in the traditional antler mounting world….what do you think?

Hello to Spring! Linen, Antlers & Horns

Welcome Spring….and my love of linen, antlers & horns


Kudu lamp with linen shade, vintage Blesbok & Reedbok mounts on linen.

A South African still life I made from vintage horns I have re- purposed for new life in linen.

This Spring also brings two new finishes to the Heritage Game Mounts line:

BlackBerry Finish

BlackBerry is a beautiful black distressed finish with highlights of red & umber that compliment black horns.

Old World White Finish

Old World White is a white patina finish that looks terrific with naturally sun bleached antlers & as an elegant contrast to colored walls or stone.

The Old World White finish has an Alpine Ski Lodge feel
The BlackBerry finish compliments the black horns of the vintage 1980 Steinbok

Another new addition to our line is custom monograms to the Legacy

Black bold face on gray linen
Brown script on natural linen



The African Collection:

One of a kind vintage Reedbok
Vintage Blesbok on linen



The European Collection

Bottom: German Shooting Targets


German shooting targets are made from my original chromolithographs pat’d in 1897
