Default 5:2 and the three 150's together at last

Just got back from the taxi with the 5:2 and my Junco 12's skull. It's the first time the three 150's have been together. 5:2 will not stay on the fireplace. Mailman and I are starting an axis wing, but we may have to wait until Judy's gone for the day. I have another axis waiting on a cape and I'll have another one this summer, so the 4 will go on the bare wall to the left of my double drop. The buck second from the right is my Tower 9 and he'll go in the garage. The three 150's will go between the double drop and Bo Point, between my big 10 and whichever buck I put there. Big Baby 8 will go where the rifle axis is located. Once the screws are in the wall, what can she do? LOL

three over 150

We cover it as personal property or (contents) coverage within the home. Make sure you have replacement cost coverage on your contents as the value of your mounts is not going to be much, that way if you had to have mounts redone you would have the money to do so. If you start getting a really large collection make sure your contents coverage is high enough to include your taxidermy work. I have got a customer whos house burned to the ground year back and their insurance agent at the time with whatever company they had then did not reccomend for them to up their contents coverage to include his $300,000 worth of taxidermy in his trophy room. House burned and he did not have the extra contents coverage to protect them. One of the mounts was the current World #2 bighorn sheep full body mount. OUCH!

Codie,
Is there any way to recover the actual cost of replacing the animal. I.E. If some one went on a package hunt and killed an animal and the cost was $6500 is there a way to recover that.

No sir, not that I know of. The actual cost of replacing the animal would be the taxidermy cost only. The cost that you are reffering to would be replacing the hunt, experience, trip cost. It cost you $6500 to go on the hunt, it cost $500 to have the animal mounted. The only thing lost was the mount, not the hunt/experience involved in killing the animal. (no one will ever be able to take that from you)

Yep, I'm getting them mounted, but it'll be awhile before he gets to them, so I brought the horns home. I'll take them back when the time gets closer.

I finally got me a nice buck to put on the wall, dropped him off at the taxi last year, and the taxi has disappeared and won't return calls or nuthin'.

Your walls look great, and I wouldn't take any of them down. To me if they're good enough to die, they're good enough to display.

Not calling you out, but if you have a replacement cost policy on contents, the replacement cost would probably be closer to what it would cost for you to buy a new mount, not just the taxidermy mounting costs.

Ebay would probably be a good place to look to find the replacement cost -- what would it cost for you to buy one of my mounts?? I promise the cost would be higher than whatever I paid for the taxidermy.


And Tuthdoc --- WOW !!!!

A replacement policy pays to replace your mounts with the same like, kind, and quality. It does not pay to replace your mounts with John Doe from Michigans mounts off of ebay. The company is not going to pay you more than it cost to replace or fix your mounts. The taxidermy cost is the cost incured to create the mount. It would be advised to keep some pictures of your mounts in case there is a loss bad enough where they can't be identified.

I've paid for them as an adjuster -- I pay for what a similar mount would cost in the open market -- that means Ebay or anywhere else that buyers and sellers operate, buying and selling in arms length transactions.

A taxidermist can't crap a mount. The hide and the horns have to come from somewhere. Normally those are supplied by the hunter. In the open market, a price is attached to those items based on what they will bring in the type of transaction I described above.

Just be aware that if you are only insuring for the amount of the taxidermy work that, in my opinion, if you have a total loss up to policy limits, you will be short when it comes time to pay for replacement mounts.

I named that axis five:deuce. He had a pattern on his shoulder that looked like a five:deuce domino.

If I had hunted them out of DB's, I would have had to do European mounts cause my taxi money would have been wrapped up in ground blinds. LOL
