Question How Much Is Your Mount??

How much dose your taxidermest charge you for a shoulder mount??



To get a mule deer mount done here it runs $400-$500 most of the time.

I am getting a whitetail shoulder mount done this year for 466$. I figured that is about average.

Well that sounds right, we had 3or4 different hunters this fall tell us that they were getting their mounts done for for like $275 and that that was for good mounts, I just thought I would ask and see what you guys had to say.

Well I think I pay around 500. I know of some taxidermist that charge 250 in my area. But it looks like a $2.50 mount! I would look at the taxidermists work before I make a decision. JMHO

Yeah I think when it comes to something like this you get what you pay for.
