I killed a nice one and was wondering what kind of price to expect.

Check in the taxidermy section. I paid $500 for my last one.

$450 up, usually 50% down and the rest on completion.

FWIW, look at their work, not price if you can. Sometimes you get what you pay for, others times, a great deal. Their work will tell you how good a deal it is.

I've seen them as cheap as $300 and as high as $700.

As was said, you usually get what you pay for, but not always. I will say that (especially if a guy is on the lower end of the price spectrum) his work/references need to be thoroughly vetted.

I use a guy that is toward the upper end of the price spectrum but it's worth it knowing his work.

It varies...350 -550 where I am, but typically you get what you pay for on a low cost mount. DO NOT base you sele4ction on cost. Go to the taxidermist shop..look at his work...don't focus on the antlers.... look at the eyes, nose and ears...also make sure he tans the hides.

The quote I got seem a bit steep at $680. He does good work but I didn't expect it to be that high.

For a wall mount that seems high...for a pedestal mount (including the pedestal...maybe not.

It was for a wall mount. I want a wall pedestal, not enough to pay $800 for it though.

Go with a Mackenzie wall pedestal form. They look great and are reasonable price wise, slightly higher than regular wall mounts(at my taxi anyway) but worth the extra. Like all have said trust his work, not his word.

I paid $450 for a completed, sent to be tanned-not tanned in house, Mackenzie mount last year. Regular wall was $400. Maybe a little favoritism, he's a friend of mine. Little does he know even if we weren't buddies and he gave me regular price I'd still use him, He does great work. Still wouldn't see it being near your prices.

For $680 it seems worth atleast a short drive elsewhere.
