Sonoran Skulls

Sonoran Skulls European Mounting Company My name is Lane Ellwood, owner and operator of Sonoran Skulls Taxidermy, European Mounting Company. I believe each animal is beautiful and majestic in nature.

I love the way European Mounts portray nature’s delicate and intricate beauty—I prefer them over a typical mount. I have been hunting all my life and am known amongst my peers as someone who is energized by the freedom of the outdoors. Each mount is a personal investment of the joy, the love and the passion I have for animals. I understand that each skull has a story to tell, a victory to be celeb

Hey Guys!

It's been a while since I've posted! I have been pushing skulls out like crazy and haven't had much time to spend on here. I have been working on ramping up my Artificial Prickly Pear Operation and am very excited to see large numbers of Quality realistic Artificial Prickly Pear Cacti run through my shop:)

If you are having an animal mounted by your taxidermist and would like some of my Prickly Pear in your habitat, let the taxidermist know. I would love to talk to them and contribute to your mount.

Keep Slaying Those Javelinas!!

General information

Sonoran Skulls uses the Maceration Process when cleaning game. The reason the Maceration Process is preferred instead of the beetle method is because bacteria do a better job of cleaning the actual muscle off the animal. Bacteria are smaller and, therefore, can get in places beetles simply cannot (example: behind the teeth or between bones).
