I was wondering if there are any taxidermists here that could offer any insight? I shot a bear this year and was going to get a rug made. It isn't a huge bear by any means, but it is a cool chocolate color and the wife has always wanted a rug. The hide tapes out at a little over over 5 feet. The taxidermist I took it too gave me a price of $215/foot for a rug, for a total of $1075. Maybe it is just me, but that price seems VERY steep to me. Is this the going rate????
