Up here in Colorado it is around $550.00.

You have to figure that you

You have to figure that you are paying for the knowledge to put it together right.

When I was working people used to get angry when I would hand them a invoice for a couple hundred dollars for 30 minutes worth of work but I would just tell them that is why they called in a expert at what I did. Even now when I go out to do a little work I charge $200.00 an hour from the time that I leave my house.

I just wished that the company that I used to work for would of paid me that kind of wage.

HOGGETTER,

Matt is very reasonably priced even for the quality work he does. There is another taxidermist in the same area that I used to work for Greg Brumfield (also a friend of mine), owner of Brumfield's Taxidermy, that charges $1200 What?? for a deer shoulder mount. He is one of the best in the country. He has also started his own line of muledeer forms.

I guess it just depends on what you are looking for...... Yes
