Hi all, I'm looking for a recomendation for a taxidermist within reasonable driving distance from Grass Valley. Also, anybody know what deer shoulder mount will likely cost me?Thanks Jim

I don't know of any in the Grass Valley area but Crabtree's has been in business for a very long time and does excellent work. As for cost it's been 20 years since I've had any mounts done.CRABTREE'S TAXIDERMY 7929 OLD AUBURN RDCITRUS HEIGHTS, CA 95610 916-725-4466

my guess is 500 for a shoulder mount. There is a couple in grass valley. Check the phone book. Couldnt reccomend a good one because when i lived there i never killed anything worth mounting.

Harry Pelton is in Alta Sierra. Great taxidermist if you're still looking for one. He's doing my bear I got this year.Harry Peltonph- 530-273-6745He did my brother's 4x5 buck last year turned out awesome.

I've seen them at $650 up here and $250 in Wisconsin so would guess somewhere in between for a nice shoulder mount. I'd like to see some pics of that deer as well!

Lets see some picture of that deer!!
I'll try and see if I have the pics of that buck on my other system. But, here's 3 we killed in Idaho last year and a huge black bear I shot this year on Sept 23rd - was about 500lbs...I'm getting the head and hide done with the taxidermist I mentioned earlier.post-3-1261343958_thumb.jpgpost-3-1261343993_thumb.jpg

post-3-1261344025_thumb.jpgOkay. here's the picture of my brother's 4x5. This was taken in California and not in an X zone. Had tarces of mule deer in him. We've seen some good bucks where we hunt, but this one is definnitely a record for us in that area - I shot my black bear in the same area this year...must be the water ?!?
