The Guy You Know Taxidermy<Daniel Elkins>

« on: June 14, 2012, 02:03:52 PM »

I have been looking at a bunch of small taxidermy supply companies that have prices a lot cheaper than WASCO. WASCO will sell an advrage deer form for like 50+ dollars. I have been finding them for a little over 30 dollars from these small guys. It seems like the small guys prices are better on everything, clay, needles, and coon mounts. a coon form  WASCO will cost a 100 dollar bill after shipping. The small companies will have them for like 40+.

My question is where do most of you guys buy form? Is there bad forms to stay away from?

I shop all the supply companies and buy the form that suits the mount that I want to produce the best.
Price your work accordingly and you will not have to worry about the cost of the form. Buy your other
supplies where you get the best prices and remember that alot of things can be picked up locally and
saves on shipping.

I agree that my price should cover the form, but I would like to find a good product at a good price, so that I can give a competitive price.

It's not all about the price for a form. You need to check out the quality. I have seen some of those $30 forms (not all) and they are built very sloppy.
If the price for a quality form is to much for you, adjust your price's.

Danial are you aware that WASCO is the sponsor of this site. If you are not liking their price look at other suppliers but don't come on to WASCO site and complain about their price. They provide this site for all of us to enjoy and learn. And the price of the form is no big deal since it is the customer who is paying for it. Cheaper is not always better! Good luck

I am a firm believer in you get what you pay for. I am not really bashing WASCO I just trying to find a good price and product. I do think that I have a responsibility to try to give a good price to who ever i am doing work for. I am not a real taxidermist. I just play with this in hopes to be one day.
