    Just trying to get a feel what people charge to do wholesale whitetail. This is my scenario, go to taxidermists shop and pick up antlers,cape and supplies. Return to my shop, prep antlers, cape, form and mount deer. When dry get ready for finish work and deliver back to taxidermist. Also pickup and delivery are about 7hr round trip.

    I have a contract guy I use about 7 hrs round trip ,same scenario. except I pay for a completely finished head.i pay 25% for the finished head.He picks up and delivers 8-10 at a time.Mostly exotic gameheads I charge 750-775 for.whitetails 650.So he's getting about 175-190 per head.this is for a very experienced taxidermists work.

    You supply the wholesaler with all supplies on gameheads.....at least in my experience.......the exception on my part is fish and birds.
