This is truly an Amazing Art Nouveau German Porcelain Game or Gaming Set that would make a prized possession for any archery elk hunter and his proud family.

The largest breed of elk resides in northwestern Montana and the Idaho panhandle of United States. Near Yellowstone National Park and Idaho Falls is one favorite area for elk hunting in the USA.  In Canada, near Banff in Alberta, is a Canadian favorite elk sporting area.

A tremendous score for an elk hunter would be a monster bull elk that scores over 500 and are indeed rare. In parts of the United States, hunters will pay as much as $8,000 for a license to hunt a trophy elk. Here you can have your prized elk for a lot less than a license and still preserve wild life as you enjoy your trophy mounted over your fireplace.
