    I know this has been said a million times but you need to figure out what ii takes for you to mount a turkey and charge accordingly. It should not matter what others charge. I will answer your question though. I charge $650.00 for a turkey. I do not know if that is good or bad, it is just what I charge. I was at $550.. and raised my prices last year because I did not want many turkeys. Well it backfired and I ended up with more than ever.

    Number of hours in the mount times shop rate plus cost of materials including shipping. You will never be under charging if you shop rate is on. I get $425 for a breast mount/tail mount with artificial or freeze dried head that I paint.
