It’s a problem. You really want to be like your buddies and have a deer head in your living room, but the idea of killing Bambi makes you faint. The Cardboard Safari Animal Trophies lets you have the best of both worlds, and you don’t have to worry about your significant other donating it to charity when you’re away.
The cardboard deer head comes in its own cardboard box, and that seems like it should be disturbing in some weird way, but it’s not. You can go for the traditional brown deer or if you prefer the big game, you can also choose from an elephant or a moose. Regardless of what color you choose, you can get crazy and personalize it with paint, glitter, wrapping paper, and just about anything else you find laying around that fires up your artistic spirit.
Just like the deer you might shoot in the woods
if you weren’t a wuss, this trophy requires a little preparation before mounting, although putting this thing together is probably a lot more sanitary than field-cleaning one of those real beasts, and there are detailed, illustrated instructions for Bucky. Does Bambi provide instructions after you’ve bagged him? No, I didn’t think so.
If you have a quirky sense of style, or just have a hunting buddy you want to irritate, you can get the Cardboard Safari Animal Trophies at Uncommon Goods starting at $28.
That would really be a great alternative to the real deer head, which for me personally looks kind of scary and pitiful.
