    <P>as a taxidermist it is funny how the price for doiing this profession is all over the place. some guys charge alot and some hardly enough to cover their costs. so how much does yours charge? and are you happy with his work?</P>

    <P>The guy who does my mounts charges $180.00 a duck and anywhere from $250.00 to 350.00 a goose.&nbsp; He does a great job!!!&nbsp; Just got back my black duck looks to darn real.&nbsp; The year before he mounted a Canadian for me, I swear it blinks!!!&nbsp; Before this guy I was paying $100.00 a duck, lets say you get what you pay for sometimes.&nbsp;</P>
