    I see nothing wrong with helping your wall mounted deer head accessorize with a tassel around its neck. It’s the whole shooting, stuffing and mounting part I don’t get!

    I guess Missouri is the south too. Happy WW.

    Deer hunting is a fascinating hobby to some. Maybe it’s the thrill of the unpredictable.

    I’m not sure what is worse…the deer, or the tassel! If you’re going to hang a deer, at least give it a tiny bit of afterlife dignity and don’t accessorize it!

    Happy WW!

    It’s out here in Colorado, too! I embarrass myself frequently by complimenting the “deer” that is actually an elk, or vice versa.

    LOL, I have lived in the south all my life and never have I seen anyone with a deer mounted on the wall; let alone one with a tassel. I do know some people that keep an extra freezer just for deer meat. No wait…they’re yankees. LOL 🙂

    I’m with you on that…We used to have a BBQ joint here in town that used dead stuffed animals as the decor. I never went in to eat because, really, how could I sit there and eat meat with all the animal heads staring at me…ack! Now…the tassle…that’s a good thing!

    My husband has one of those but I refuse to let him bring it home. At least it is not decorated like some I have seen.

    A familiar sight to someone who lived in East Texas for 7 years of her childhood! That was a big event every year. We never had any in our house, but grandparents had plenty to make up for it. It is really dumb when you think about it!

    Well they should have left off the pictures, deer heads should always stand alone. Ha ha. Seriously, I would cry if there was a dead animal on my wall staring at me all the time.

    Well, I can’t answer the question why? they do this, but I do know it takes a long time to make and costs a LOT of money! My last babysitter’s husband did this for a living!!!! She says he is “fast” and “fast” is three months! I was like wow!!! It’s interesting to talk to someone who does love it, but somehow, I still don’t understand it myself. I know it is an Art form I have learned! Do I have one in my house? Nope. But I have more respect since the babysitter I explained above.
