    For all you taxidermists out there I shot a yote last night with my bow and was thinking about having it mounted. Is this time of year good to have one mounted in terms of their coat and all or would it be better once it is colder?

    What does something like that run?

    Wife is not happy that I'm even thinking about it. LOL!!

    It really depends on the dog. I killed this dog last October, and it made a nice mount. She still would have had better fur in December. It's hard to tell much from your pic, but it's possible it could be nice. The end result will have as much to do with the taxidermist you choose as the animal you are having done.

    to me each coyote is different this time of year some have good fur some don't.will they be better in later in the winter?it will be thicker.this is what i always look at. is how pretty is the coyote,distinctive markings,good tail,notched ear,scarred face,no rubs.it takes all those thing to make a good looking coyote.

    Just for comparison, here is a nicely furred coyote that I did for a customer a couple years ago.

    I will take my good camera down and take a better pic of it next chance I get. He's frozen now. All I had last night was my cell phone. He has a pretty coat, I'm just not sure if he'll brush out good yet. All I have to reference is the way my Siberian's coat is this time of year.

    I just don't know how well he'll brush out. He definitely needs a good brush thru.

    expensive. I would guess $450 for a full body but i'm not a taxidermist. I have just looked at the pricing sheets around Beaufort, Sullivan, and Rolla.

    I would also be interested in a skin out and tan.

    i dont remember off hand what i paid to have the one i posted done, but i believe it was around 5 hundy with the base.
    you can get them cheaper sure, but the real workmanship on predators is in the eyes and face...and you can tell. look around at predator mounts, the majority of them have this look like someone is stabbing them up the rear with a hot poker.

    I get $450 for the shoulder pedestals, $675 for a lifesize plus the cost of the base.
