first to start out. I started a very small, on the side taxidermy shop. I have completed several mounts from shoulder to lifesize and friends and other costumers love the end product. I take my time and probably over do it just so I make sure I put out the best I can and not be the next "hack" in the taxidermy field. Now I had my brother call last night and he had a friend that shot a small black bear around 150 lbs. that wanted a full body mount done. He asked me for a quote and said to give this guy a good price because he is a very big hunter and is the president of a very well off hunting club. I figured up some numbers and told him for a free standing bear $1100 and if he wanted a base I would only charge him a extra $100. Know I thought this was a good price, a very good price! between sending the hide out and material. He then tells me the guy had called around and he found a guy that would do a lifesize for $850 and 3/4 for $650. I told him if that was the case then good luck I could not go that low. How in the world can anyone do it for that or am I way off in my price? I thought I was low and gave him a good VERY good price. Was I wrong?
