    I have 7 deer feet for a customer along with his shoulder mount. I am unsure what to charge for the feet.
    If you want to share your current prices and your location feel free as I'm sure many will look.

    I'm in WI.
    Shoulder mount, deer, $450
    shoulder mount, bear, $550
    1/2 lifesize bear, $1200
    lifesize bear start at $2500

    I don't do birds or fish.

    If I remember Galen at Edgewater taxidermy, charged me $10 a foot to freeze dry the last ones I di a few years ago and I charged the customer $25 a foot.

    Calculate your average gross hourly overhead, add in your labor cost and multiply by the number of hours you intend to put into the job. Then add in the supply cost and put something in for a profit. Good luck!

    Yep joeym, I prefer to skin mount them rather than freezedry. I can have them skinned (all the way), Liqua tanned and mounted in no time at all.

    ha, Fishart you caught that eh? He asked his butcher for extra feet. He thought he had 8 but I only have 7, unless my dryer taught my freezer how to steal one (think socks). Joeym I am also skin mounting them and was thinking $50 a pair so thank you.
