i think it will really vary upon your taxidermist, I think my dad's full body mount was around $1500 and the guy did an wonderful job. it took over a year but it's a 1 man show I believe the guy even does his own tanning but was worth the wait. I would imagine a 1/2 would be close to the same since I think most of the detail/time is going to be in the face
Thank you for the info guys. I have one full mount, it cost around 1400. I was looking for cheaper options this year around if I got so lucky. I love the look of rugs also, but those aren't much cheaper. I also even thought about just having it tanned. Not as sure about the cost there. I will chat with my taxidermist.
