I have joined this forum in order to get a wide variety of opinions from those of you who know the subject best. I am FINALLY receiving my mule deer shoulder mount this week after delivering it to a taxidermist early in the season in 2009. After making MULTIPLE attempts to reach him over the years, he is just now "able" to deliver my finished mount. Through email correspondence, I have set a date to meet up with him later this week to pay and receive the mount. However, he I asking $400 for it. The price WOULD have been fine if it was done within the 8-10 month average time frame (from what I have gathered via Internet search), but it has almost been 5 years! Is it unreasonable on my part to only agree to pay $250? That would be a $50 discount for each year after 2010... How much money does it cost for supplies? Thank you!
