Default Would You Mount It?

I shot this awesome ring neck last week and am considering getting it mounted. Would you? What’s the cut off price where you wouldn’t? $500? $700? (I haven’t researched enough to actually know the cost)

Major consideration for me is a trophy room being built soon and would like some diversity. I have mostly deer but also an aoudad, fish and a pheasant.

What y’all think?

You almost certainly won't kill another one like it. If I feel like I may never get another opportunity at something I'm getting it mounted.

I'd mount it if the price is right. Wouldn't pay over $500 though, since you asked.

Yes go do it. You will probably never shoot another. Your buddies will probably never shoot one. I cant imagine it costing more than $300. If they say 500 you need to shop around. Plus you will have bragging rights over Smart so it's a win win all the way around

Mount her up! Like mentioned above, it shouldn't cost you anymore than a duck mount, which normally runs $200-300.

Yes and I wouldn't think twice about it. If I shot it, I would have definitely had to pull the head off knowing my luck. One bird taxi I use said doves are hard and if you want one mounted then bring a few to choose from. Hopefully you don't have any problems

I mount lots of birds and doves are by far the toughest to mount. That being said I would only send it to a taxidermist that has proven their selves mounting doves. Danny Owens in Lubbock is who I would talk to. I wouldn't touch it!

You'd be surprised. Tiny animals are harder to do than average sized ones, and think about how easily a doves feathers come out when you just put them in a game bag.

I'd be prepared for at least $500.
