Fastest mount return.

Just wondering how long you guys have waited for your mounts. List time and type of mount.

Re: Fastest mount return.

Longest I have waited is a year. I know of several guys who have waited several years. I don't understand why anyone would take an animal to a taxidermist who can not get in back within a year! It boggles me!

I with just about every one I know, now take our deer to Dave Dillon of Acme Taxidermy. 6 months and he is hanging on my wall.

Re: Fastest mount return.

It really depends. Godo taxidermists are usually swamped, so a year is the average. I have had some stuff that was full body mount done faster, as he needed room in the freezer/shop.

Black Squirrel - 5 years and Gray Fox from same gent - 6 Years...Took them both there at the same time.

Yep, not a typo and that fellow won't ever get any of my business again.

Re: Fastest mount return.

Waiting for a quality mount is not an issue for me. Typically a year is expected. Took my buck this year to a very good taxi and paid a few hundred more then all other local guys but will be done in 6-8 months. Does everything in shop

Re: Fastest mount return.

Quickest I ever got anything back was about 6 weeks and that was last years archery buck. Longest I've waited was for a full body bear mount and that just over a year, but from a different taxi.

Iím a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.

6 weeks is normal for mine, has been shorter but almost never longer.

If you are getting it back in 6 weeks then your cape isn't tanned.

Re: Fastest mount return.

Not true Joe. I tan a lot of my deer capes and I can have one done in about 5 days. I have a 20 capes ready for the tan today from the first day of Buck. My butt is dragging though. LOL
As for the six week turn around, I bet your taxi is not very busy. I can guarantee you that he isn't doing much work.

Did you wait that long to pay him once you picked them up?
