I gave up years ago worrying about what others charge. I just make sure I get what I need to make a living. The low baller WILL be gone soon...but another will pop up. Had a guy bring me 2 BIG crappie this summer that some other "taxidermist" butchered. He wanted to know if I could "fix" them. I said no matter how much work I did they would still look like crap. He told me he paid $6 an inch...I told him he got what he paid for.
