I was just wondering what different states and areas in those states get for a standard deer head . Please be honest, I know some areas can’t get what others do . That said I also know newer taxidermist just starting out charge less as they feel there not as good and are trying to build a client base , but what they don’t understand is the client base they are building are cheap skates that don’t care and will probably not pick the finished mount up on time and will leave there shop as soon as they find the next cheap Taxidermy shop . I learned a long time ago your never going to make everyone happy , so do the best you can and charge for it . I’m not cheap but my garuntee is , and this is on all my mounts , if my client pays the fees to enter it , I will put a 1st - 3rd place ribbon on it in the master category. I do all my mounts competition quality but again I charge for it , I don’t get all the work in my area because of my prices , but I’d rather mount 1 pcs and make the same profit that it takes others to get by mounting 2-3 pcs . I’m in MD on what they call the Eastern Shore , not to far from Dover Delaware, My area gets $650. To $700. I charge $825. For a standard shoulder mount but that’s with all the bells and whistles you might say , but no alterations, fixing points , excessive holes and such are extra. I do 40 deer or so a year . So what do you all get for your standard client mount ? what state ? And post a pic of one of your mounts. Thanks for joining in , I believe it be neat to see what’s going on in the rest the country.
