Default Deer Euro mount cost

What are shops charging these days? Itís been a while since Iíve had one done. I think the last time was my wifeís fallow and we were charged around $250 and it included a wooden plaque.

I've not paid more than $100 for a euro and plaque from a taxidermist. Paid a friend this year $75 without a plaque.

There is a guy locally that I have been using that charged me $150 total for two bucks and a bobcat skull. He has since done about 5 other euro mounts for family and friends for $50 each. Obviously, no mount or plaque is included. He does a lot of them for folks around here...

I do them for myself and occasionally a hunting buddy. Cost me about 4 hours of my time and a couple bucks at the car wash pressure washer.

That's highway robbery!

I used a guy that does a little taxi work com his home and he charged me $100 plus the cost of the plaque I picked from his catolog. He is not making any money on the plaque as he just passes it on at his cost. It ended up being $130. He did a really good job.
