Where would I find a hook or bracket to hang moose antlers from a stone fireplace? Antlers weigh about 30 lb

The antlers will be hanging over a gas fireplace. The antlers are sort of rounded and not flat the center connection would be about 4-6 inches away from the fireplace.

This is a two-part question-1) How do I get a hook into the wall and 2) How do I get the antlers to hang on the hook when the center is half a foot from the wall. The answers below are mostly for #1, mine for #2. You could use a long hook or wire that reached the hook in the wall. You could find or make a antler mount that wold hold them. You could use two hooks where the antlers DO touch the wall rather than one where they don't get close to the wall. You could hang them like a picture, using a wire support.

Be careful when using anchors that expand to grip, when using them in mortar of soft stone.

I'm not sure this is the answer you're looking for, but I think the usual approach would be to install something like a concrete anchor into the mortar between two stones, run a screw into that, and use the screw to hang whatever mounting plaque or bracket supports the antlers.
