Fisher Mounts

Got a big male this season. I know the fur isnt worth much compaired to the little black females, but he is big and has beautiful fur. Also he is my first, so he got wrapped up and put in the freezer. I'm tossing around the idea of making a rug or having him mounted. Anyone have any nice fisher mounts they would like to share to give me some ideas?

Thanks

Re: Fisher Mounts

They make a nice life size mount if you decide to go that way.

Re: Fisher Mounts

That is nice! Mine is jet black except a little gray/tan on the head and shoulders. Looking at the prices of mounts. Its just not in the cards this year.

Thanks

Re: Fisher Mounts

Had a taxidermist on another site message me and offer to take payments for a full mount. Total cost $695. Isn't that a little steep? He also offered to buy it whole/frozen for $150. Hard decision here.

Re: Fisher Mounts

A good taxi will only require a deposit at drop off'. Then you'd have at least a year to put the cash away to pick it up.

Re: Fisher Mounts

IMO rugs are on the ugly side and do not do the animal justice. If you really wanted it mounted you would not throw around the idea of selling it.If you are throwing around the idea of selling it,it probaly wasn't meant to be mounted.Its not very often that people catch fishers.If you decide to mount it check out the taxis other work and decide if you want to pay that much then do it.If not check out others.

Re: Fisher Mounts

That is a DANDY fisher. Wish the one I caught this season was as large.

Re: Fisher Mounts

That's in the ballpark for a good fisher mount, you get what you pay for , do your homework.
