Last year I raised my deer price to $650. So far I am busier than ever. I've had several customers bring in deer and hogs and tell me they're surprised my prices are cheaper than another taxidermist around here because my "work is so much better." I'm torn between being flattered and thinking I should have raised my prices to $700 for deer and $850 for hogs. My thinking is how dare someone who does work that isn't as good as mine charge more than I do. Lol. I'm very busy and every time I think raising my prices will slow things down, it doesn't. I don't like jumping more than $50 at a time so I guess I know what I have to do next year. One thing I like is that the other taxidermist has to drive 6-10 hours on trips to pick up or deliver, but I don't usually do any pick up or delivery so I don't have to worry about trips. Although I am part time, I do about 200 mounts a year. I'm not sure what he does, but he's full time. It's nice though to be priced at what I consider to be the high end only to have customers ask why you don't charge more.
