A Short History of Stag Head Wall Mounts
There is no natural predator to deer in the UK and originally deer head mounts were the result of deer management programs. This involved a highly-skilled, strategic approach, often selecting the animal within the herd due to sickness or age. The stag heads were then mounted to show respect for this great animal.
What are Resin Stag Heads?
These deer or stag head wall mounts are made from a strong resin, which is cast or 3D printed in geometric angles to create the head of a deer. The antlers are cast separately and fitted to the head once it has been mounted on the wall.

How to mount a Resin Stag Head on the Wall
Just like a picture, animal mounts are easy to hang on the wall. There is a built-in slotted picture hanging plate fixed glued or screwed to the back of the stag head. This means the stag head will fit flush to the wall. Resin Stag heads are not that heavy and weigh between 800 grams and 2 kg, so a single screw or strong masonry nail will suffice. If you live in rented accommodation and don’t want to damage the walls then consider Command Picture Hanging Strips, which can hold up to 7 kg if used correctly and doesn’t leave holes, marks or sticky residue when removed.
