    Thats what I was just told on Facebook !! LOL
    I was trying to explain to a part timer that he wasn't charging enough for deer heads. He says he charges $200. I told him his time is worth more than that !
    Well he keeps telling me he is making money at $ 200 and I try to tell him he is paying his customers to mount their deer heads.
    But he swears how good of business he has going & he is making good money !! HUH ????
    I guess I just need to vent ! He had me wanting to bang my head on the keyboard trying to explain to him that I was not trying to belittle him, I was trying to help him not lose money !
    He claims anybody charging over $ 200 per deer head is ripping off hunters and running a scam. Can you believe that ??!!
    I even told him nobody gets their supplies for deer heads any cheaper than I do since I am only 10 miles away from 2 supplies and drive to them . And I know he is not making $$ at $ 200 per head. But nothing doing, he wouldnt hear it. He knows he is making money from his 200 customers charging $200 a deer head !!
    After he informed me I was scamming my clients, I had to walk away from the computer !!
    Sorry, just had to vent a little !!
  2. Stupid is as stupid does. I'll keep scamming it seems. ;)

    Wow talk about clueless...yikes.
    Amazing how the 'hunters' bitch and moan about high fence etc etc and 200 is a good rate. This is what we are talking about an uneducated public. 200 how in the hell can he have a shop and bills, and make anything. The material list alone is near or over that depending on how you do it? One wonders if he is really meaning it or BS. Mike your a brave guy give him a call feel him out on materials and the like or even if he is a taxidermist might just be a guy looking for attention on facebook.

    I'm at $650 and I don't think that is enough.

    John, now thats funny. Have a new sign going in the shop, new pricing on deer mounts that reflect your break down.
