I just harvested a female lion this morning and was wondering what the average cost of a is? Ive looked at several web sites for taxis and none of them give any prices. I will call around on Tuesday but don't really want the sticker shock effect when I find out. Any recommendations on any?

$100/linear foot seems to be pretty common with a minimum usually around $500

1k is about average for a reputable taxi.

Ya I thought it was a little odd too especially since he ended doing a full body mount for $3100.

I shot a lion this fall and I believe that the cost was $1200.00 from Clay from Mogollon up in payson.    That also included the skull getting boiled.
