There is quite likely millions of dollars of excellent taxidermy on display at the Great American Outdoor Show, but for those of us who can't afford a full-body mount, Finish First Tactical of Telford, Pa., offers a unique way to display a trophy. For $100, the company will clean the skull of your deer and cover it in a hydro-graphic dip.

Finish First, which also applies Cerakote treatments to firearms, has 100 hydro-graphic patterns in stock from a catalog of about 4,000. There's nothing more American than the Stars and Stripes covering the skull of the buck you shot with your Winchester '94.
