UPDATE: $620.00 for 2021. Still less than some in my area

Are you doing alright at $780 or close to another increase?

Price of everything has gone crazy in recent years.

I'm not saying your price is crazy.

But supplies etc.

The cost for you to get what you need

One young fella that I was talking with was told $700 plus tax and would be around a yearís turn around. ( this is not where I took mine to). So after around a year he called them and asked about it. They told him it was not ready yet and needed a little over $300 more. They said something about some kind of issue that they had run into. I think that itís crap they were saying but if he wants it back I guess he will have to meet their demand. Myself I would be getting the state to look into it for him..

He had contacted the state and the taxidermist ended up sending him a picture of it and said it is almost complete. Now just waiting on a piece of wood for it and he will have it soon

Yes, I agree. I give my clients a copy of everything we discussed, pose, ear positioning, plaque, etc. included with the receipt, also the condition of the cape when I receive it. If there is a problem discovered after I thaw out the hide, then I call them and discuss what can be done and the cost, before I proceed. Sometimes you thaw out a cape and one shoulder has the hair rubbed off from dragging the deer. I will not mount that cape.
