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

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

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.

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.

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.

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

I charge 450.00 to do one and can custom wrap the body to boot ( I'd use the Brian Harness change out head) so you can have any pose you want. I can mount on a commercial form as well if those poses are what you want. I actually wish I had a male and a female skinned carcass each in the freezer as I have one of each mountable tanned skins. I wanted to wrap a custom body for the male at least.

I got a 30"+ female and looking to have mounted walking across the fireplace mantel.


$450 sounds very reasonable,

If anyone is interested in having me do a fisher or other furbearer, send me a PM or call the # in my signature. You can ship to me and I can ship back completed mounts if my location is too far a drive for you.

Pictures are always welcome here! It is unauthorized advertising that is not allowed in any forum. We strive to be consistent in ALL forums. It's the backdoor pm's bashing our sponsor that are being reported that is causing the issues. Post away with your pics!

First one I would keep it for sure.. Just my two cents. Catch another one next year and sell that one. Congrats and nice looking guy there.
