I just spoke with Rick at Cedar River taxidermy and he was very helpful. I think I'm going to be dropping the hide by his place this weekend unless I come across something substantially better closer to home. Thanks for all the input guys.

Worth the drive. Great guy to work with.

When I was living in Montana. (18 years ago mind you )
We took a deer hide in to turn into a rug, to hang over the back of the couch turned out great. $30
I miss those day's  :o

I was hoping for something close to that, but those days are LONG GONE!

I'm pretty sure he said for elk it was a flat fee of $450 + tax. Not sure on deer hides.

I also want to do a blacktail hide. It's killed me tossing the last couple because they're such beautiful hides. Definitely the best looking deer in my opinion.

 :yeah: Love that reddish tinge, even in later season.

The last couple have had lots of cinnamon and orangish red mixed into the tan and brown. Beautiful animals.
