I have a Half mount of a bear that I am waiting patiently for that will set me back 475. I can't wait!!! Instead of coming straight out of the wall, it is coming out like it is standing up cut from belly button to the back of the shoulders with a relaxed paws. Looking at me from the left like it was on the bait barrel. Too bad I couldn't get it with the drool dripping from the bottom of the jaw.

My mount is costing me $600. I had another done for $425 which turned out nice. I do agree though, you get what you pay for. I figure you may pay some money for a good mount, but it is a memory of a lifetime and they only get one shot at it to make it right.

Last year and the one this year set us back a little over $500 each. There are a few who charge less -- and one who charges more -- but we are going with quality. And hoping I am the one who kills a mount worthy buck this season instead of the husband!!

WOW 1500 just to ship it here. Guess I will not be going to Africa anytime soon.

there is no cheap in African DG hunting...In TZ a bowhunter pays double the normal trophy fees, i.e. in 2007 #1 buff on a 10 day lisc. TF was $995 USD for a rifle hunter I made my kill with a bow so the TF was $1990 and my daily fee was $875 rather than $700 because of using the bow...yes it would've been cheaper to hunt in RSA behind fence for a buffalo but I wanted the real, true Africa or nothing.
