Really varies by area. I'm a taxidermist, and I know a world champion taxidermists who get less than average guys in my area. I will say this, at $500, to do what I consider a QUALITY deer mount, you pay more per hour to have your muffler replaced, your lawn mower repaired, or your bow tuned!
I think I paid 350 for my last one. But remember the last thing you should consider is price when getting taxidermy work done. Your going to be looking at this thing for the rest of your life, what's a few hundred extra dollars?
