I think the last one I had done was $13.50/in.
If a taxidermist said that it has to be because they would rather not do a replica or can not do a replica. Todays replicas are a lot better than what was available 25 years ago. If done correctly most people can not tell the difference. But, they usually are more expensive, not always.Also a taxidermist put it this way, he feels it is important to mount THEE fish that you got not a reproduction.
Stop by the studio when you get a chance. I will be happy to explain the differences between skin mounts and reproductions and can show you examples of both steelhead and browns. My price is the same for both.KravenTheHunter said:That's for the information guys....Never would've imagined that a fish mount or reproduction would cost that much more than a deer shoulder mount, but understand quite a bit of work go into both!
