2Poppa provided a great reference. I recently had an 11 pound bass mounted for $250 by a very good taxidermist.
I worked with a "world renound" fish taxidermist in Denver 10 yrs ago and he was charging $14.95 a linear inch. He had/has all kinds of awards/ribbons,etc. for "Best in World" shows though. Got to pay to get the best.
The place I go to is around 10 dollars an inch.
The place I take my fish its 10 bucks an inch as well.
Reproductions though are 13/inch.
I've never mounted one myself, but my bro-in-law uses a guy who charges $10 an inch. He got a bass done 15 yrs. ago and it still looks great. Can't wait to see the 4# crappie he's getting mounted now. I took him to MY honey hole when he caught it!
That's one heck of a Hawg!
actually it depends on who you go to and what time of the year
5-7$ an inch.
