Mounted Deer Heads are collectibles exclusive to Saga Anderson's story within Alan Wake 2. During her story, she can interact with 12 total taxidermized, mounted deer heads in Bright Falls, Cauldron Lake, and Watery. Finding all 12 opens up the room (THE LAST ROOM) at the Elderwood Palace Lodge, which contains many useful items and ammo. Saga can track her progress by interacting with the mounted deer head inside her Mind Place, with a deep, disembodied voice stating how many remain deer heads.
