    What year are those prices from? My supplies from McKenzie cost a heck of a lot more than that.

    Liners 7.35
    Shipping 11.00
    Tanning (including freight both ways) 105.00

    Some of the haxidermists around me take in 200 to 400 deer for $250 to $300 and they look like crap! For every ugly thing wrong on the outside of a mount there are 10 ugly things on the inside! It's relatively impossible to fix stupidity.

    O.K. Rick so how you deal with that? How do you get the clients that are willing to pay for better and what do you do when you are not getting enough work because of the $300 mount?

    Rick suppliments his income by being a male dancer at the local strip club. Don't be fooled. He didn't land Nickie because of his money, charm, or good looks. ;D

    What's the big deal, it's supposed to suck. That's why it's only $275.

    How about a lifesize bear mount for $1000? I was asked to match that price the other day...i laughed and told him if he could get it done for that and could be happy with then he should do so cause i'd have that much in overhead. Some guys just like to work for free, minimum wage at best. Not this ol' boy, i like to eat....

    Isn't that the truth, thats why I avoid as much as possible the posts asking for a critique.
