Mule Deer Country Museum

The largest collection of stuffed mule deer in the world -- including multiple world record deer -- is at the Mule Deer Country Museum inside the Kansas City Cabela's.

[Ethan Rosa, 11/23/2021]

This Cabela's was formerly the home of the World Record Dead Catfish, 124 pounds and nearly five feet long. If you come for the deer, ask around; the catfish may still be in here somewhere.
