So, you save a little time and a little in materials. I also use artificial noses and the best eyes. Any habitat is additional.


I just sold.....

....a pedestal mount bobcat mount for $750. And a fisher for that same amount. Both were competition winners and both were judged by John Matthews and sold out of the shop with no advertising.The ribbons went with the mounts. Now I'm about to do a 3 coyote pedestal head mount and will ask $2100 for that mount and have little doubt that it will bring that price. Good luck pricing your work....JL.

When JL's customers walk in to buy the mounts, it is sooooo cold, they start to say 285.00 but it comes out like 575.0000000000 BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR so Jl gladly takes their money LOL It is amazing when your teeth are chattering what staggering amounts you come up with. Jl turns the heat off in the shop just for this purpose LOL LOL

Should have answered your question

I thought I had answered your question but after review I see I didnt.If a customer wants me to mount a pedestal coyote or cat I charge the same as a deer head $475. If its an open mouth add $100.If it's on a custom-made base(like a diorama) I add the price of the diorama which is generally $150 as a base price. Hope this helps you....good luck..JL
