Has anyone ever mounted a Swamp Booger made by John Rinehart.  Need some tips and how hard are they to do?

These arent the "buggers" that you were talking about but, this is how we do ours at the shop.
I hand carve each one individually to the specifications of the customer. We do a bunch every year..

A word to the wise here.  If you're intent on doing them, charge at LEAST $500 for every one of them.  They are time consuming when done correctly.  The tail can be mounted UP or Down.  Many people put bobcat jawsets in them as well as coyote noses.  The variations are endless, but if you do them cheap, ONE DAY SOON you're going to see that "novelty work" doesn't make nearly the "money" you thought it would.  That price will make only serious customers who have more money than brains want one.

I mounted one 30 or more years ago. The form I got came with the eyes and the mouth piece in it with a artificial nose. I still have it If I knew how to post pitcures on here I would.

Well I did my first "Swamp Booger" today.  It turned out great.  Took quite a bit of sewing, but I think I have a better idea on how to skin the rear end of a deer so there won't be as much sewing.  Thanks for the tips guys.  Soon as it dries, I'll try to get some pictures on here.  Again thanks for the tips.  One question what do you all charge for them?  George says $500.

The last one I did must of been 25 years ago. I think I charged $225.00 at the time which was good money for a booger but at that price I didn't do many back then.
