Default How much and how long?

Just out of curiosity, as I've never shot a deer worth mounting, but how much should a typical mount cost (with cape, not a European mount) and how long should it take (minimum/maximum) for the taxidermy? I'm looking for ballpark figures.

Thanks,

Mike

Ballpark in MN is average 6months to 1 year and each of mine cost 475-495 a shoulder mount. There are cheaper but I really like my taxi's work.

I agree with 6 months or so, but there are a lot of competent taxidermist I know that charge about $275.
