Default Who mounts squirrels? I got a pretty fox squirrel 1/9/2010 UPDATED WITH MOUNT PIC!

I watched them all deer season. Decided to go check trail cam and sit down with my .22 for a few minutes. I shot him 30 minutes later. 30 yard shot

Any suggestions on a taxidermist and how much do they charge?

Not sure about your area...but the processor closes to us wanted $150 for the one my husband shot. He ended up just keeping the tail...

(Didn't realize he logged my account out and signed in under his. Oops)

I killed it on private land in Adairsville... It's a small track of land but I saw 5 different fox squirrels one morning while deer hunting.... Thats why I figured it wouldn't hurt to take one out of the herd.... He was a big male...

Crane's in Acworth does a GREAT job on fox squirrels. I've seen several they have done and all look good. I've been looking for one for several years to take to them.

Maybe I should guide for Fox squirrels. I have about 5 black ones running around a small pecan orchard of mine.
I haven't shot one since I was a kid. They are too cool in my book.

Thank you Nicodemus. I did not mean for this to get out of hand nor did I ask anything related to what was being posted.

Default A few around here

I see a few around here every 2 weeks or so. They don't come out often. They are protected here against state law to take them(Fl.) Some real pretty ones,grays / black ,, Black with white tips. I 've tried to get them on camera but they really dont like to hang around. Used to hunt in Jasper county near Murder creek, Lots of them there or used to be.
I took one way back in hte late 60's , made a good meal for the family, big red one, with white tips
never thought of having it mounted back then. Saw some up on east side of Johns Mountain, on a lease there. A solid black one with a lite white stripe down its back,,, and NO it wasnt a skunk! It was running aroound a big oak, chasing another one. was a pretty thing to watch them.

Nice one you got, will make a nice mount, Now you need an armadillo to set him on!

The man made this thread, askin` for advice on a taxidermist, not to be chastised for killin` a squirrel that he might or might not eat. That is nobodys business but his own.

Beautiful fox squirrel, he will make a awsome mount. The price varies a lot depending on who mounts it but they will average 180-210 bucks. I dont know where you are but Id suggest finding several taxidermist near you and go look at how their squirrels look. Not all taxidermist can make them look natural. Again congratulations and lets some pics when hes finished. Also...thanks Nic for cleaning it up!

I shot pretty one season before last,and I didn't think I wanted to have it mounted. I gave 2 a buddy who wanted one to mount. When I saw it man I wished I would have had it mounted myself.

Default Squirrel Mount Pic

Taxidermist had to make him about 1/2" smaller in diameter because of the bullet hole. Still looks good to me though....
