Featuring over 200 mounted examples of North American wildlife, the collection was assembled by rancher and lawman Graves Peeler (1886-1977) during a lifetime of hunting throughout Mexico, Canada, and the Western United States. Peeler's many hunting trophies include North American deer, moose, big horn sheep, pronghorns and grizzly bears, among other species. Mr. Peeler was also one of the men responsible for saving the Texas longhorn from extinction and horns from his herd form part of the Museum's collection.
