Default Plaque Mount Price ?????

What is the average price of a plaque mount with full fan, spurs, and the beard with the used shell cap attached to the base if a taxidermist were to do it. My friend does these for just himself and does an excellent job. His work looks no different than those in the local outdoor/sporting goods store walls. A friend of mine shot a very nice bird last year and brought it to me and kind of left it for me to deal with and asked if I could get a plaque done from my other friend. When all is said and done my buddy said $100 will do. Is that a fair price on average??????? I just think it is alot of work to take a whole bird and do all that.

i use to do the wood work take and make the feather individual and use the beard. you've seen the picks, well i charged 75 that was a little low considering the work/time invovled in the woodwork and finishing. so 100 total isn't bad. all the mounnts in my album were done by me.
