What Do You Charge For A Deer Head

Discussion in 'Deer and Gameheads' started by 13 point, Sep 13, 2019.

  1. this thread has left what really got it going. The 5 hour deer that got a fellow taxinetter pure belittled. Then bam others come out of the closet and silence fell on that. Granted he never showed his 5 hour deer. But under those circumstances he would have been a fool to. He choose the high road just bailed from the thread. Proably this web.

    Then as usual it turns to the 10th million thread on pricing. Its never ended well on all the others NEVER! I suspect it wont this time either.

    I wish we all could be at 800 hell a 1000.00 but its not going to happen.
    No body knows for certain that the sun wont burn out tommorow. And no body knows for certain what will happen with such drastic price increases. Maybe it would turn out well, but there is a chance also it could bankrupt a business. For a lot of us thats not a gamble we are willing to take. I like my house, trucks, tractor, guitars. I would really like to keep them. So Gamble on someone said I did it. I Dont think so!
    What I know for sure not one single person pushing 800.00 pricing. Will be knocking on my door to help out with financial aid. Should I take that gambel and fail.

    The fact that this "pricing thing" is always centered around deer heads has always puzzled me a bit! I remember years ago having this very heated debate with one member known for being a arrogant ass (I wont mention his name but he is no longer on here) and we were all losers who didnt charge what he charged for deer mounts! I looked at his web sight and pointed out to him that I am just a little humble taxidermist in the hills of Alabama and I was higher on almost everything else than him and on some African game by over a $1000 per piece!! WTH? He also had this thing about how non of us payed taxes....o_O Buck will know who I am talking about!;)

    Turkeys are my favorite thing to mount. I have never done a full mount for customers ( I do have a full room in my shop filled with my own turkeys I mounted) but the breast w/tail wall mounts I did for customers started at $475.00. Turkeys are not a thing here in Oregon like they are in other states so not a lot of turkey taxidermy happening compared to other game animals/ birds.

    Um, I forgot this is the game head section.
