Most on here say that the amount paid is directly related to the quality of the mount you get back. Everyone says how much they charge but I don't see any pictures of their work. Price is not always an indication of quality. My price is lower than it should be, I do make pretty good money, but the amount of work I'm taking in is just too much. i am keeping up, but I have to stay on it all the time. Next year i am going to raise my price and hope that it cuts back on the numbers. If I raise my price I will be higher than anyone that I know of around here, and I am still going to be a long ways from $500.There are two other guys with in 15 miles of me that take in 150 to 200 Deer a year each and they are less than me now. They have both been in business for over 30 years at both places, I can't believe that this area will support prices much higher than theirs, but we will see. sorry bill i just could help myself.
