Why is a pig mount so expensive? I want one, but I don't to pay $750. I was just curious why they're considerably more than a whitetail shoulder mount.

Just guessing but I bet most people want the cutters showing and mouth open so that's more detail=more money. That and the hide might be harder to tan/flesh out?

several hours more labor in skinning prepping. Tanning cost and supplies are higher than a deer. We get 895,00

If you've ever done a euro on one you would understand some of the cost....

A lot more work the be done. Harder to skin cause the hide is tougher. Longer boil because of more grease, have to pull teeth and glue them back in.

Yes sir. They are right. There are many hours spent on hide prep to mount one. And the shield in a hog can be very challenging. Then degreasing. Then tanning and mounting. Beautiful when mounted just work to get there is where costs lay.

I appreciate it. I want one, but I have a hard time paying that. Being that pigs are a dime a dozen, maybe I can find a cool one for sale.

I shot a big blond boar a few years ago after hunting him for a month and should have shoulder mounted him, I did my own euro instead.

I will say if you shoot anything that you have a history with or something unique, if you want a shoulder mount do it. I still regret not shoulder mounting that boar.

I want to rephrase my previous statement, and hopefully I am not misunderstood. I don't have an issue paying for one because they are overpriced and I don't think taxidermists are "gouging" on pig mounts. I have an issue paying that for a pig. For me, it's not necessarily a trophy. Just more of a novelty.

Just skull mount them. They look great if they have any decent set of cutters.
