    Muntjac buck - full shoulder mount; who to use and how much to pay [East Anglia]

    Afternoon all

    Anyone in East Anglia recently had a Buck mounted, and if so who did you use and what did they want for the work? Were you pleased with their work?

    PM if you will please.

    Many thanks in advance

    Howard Bennett who lives near Norwich had a display at Holkham a couple of years ago and looked good. Quoted 200 for a Roe. 01603 897178.

    Best muntjac I've seen done are by Colin dunton (Wiltshire).
    I had a good buck done by Bennett and I've sold it as it just looked too much like a jack Russell.
    I think three of the big estates here use Colin for their reds and muntys.

    And that's why there's an extensive species indentification section in the DSC1 test...

    Not a monster but it did have a rear tine.
    Hence why I wouldnt recommend them!

    It does look a bit evil for a very small deer. I can see why you had to shoot it before it attacked you!

    and why it ended up on ebay!!! One plus side was that it did make a little profit to put towards good taxidermy!

    Which brings us back to the original question. Realistically, how much is a decent shoulder mount of a small deer, i.e. a muntjac, CWD or roe? Is size actually a consideration in terms of costs?

    be well worth giving Claire Fowler (freedom taxidermy) a call or email, I think a small deer is around 275-350 but don't quote me, and her work is second to non in my humble opinion.....
    Opinions are like arseholes....... we all have them, and most of them stink
