Want to say my last one was in the 220 range. Have all my work done in the Spicer area. Hate to guess what quality work would run here in the metro. Obviously, don't let price alone dictate who does your work. Birds will keep a long time in the freezer until you have the $ for quality work that you will enjoy looking at for years.

Get out of the metro and the prices will drop significantly...and sometimes the quality will go up to! Check around for prices and quality. I have had some impressive mounts completed for 100 bucks believe it or not! Good luck!

      I just checked the cedar Island Access there was about two-and-a-half to three inches of ice

      Took a drive around the lake today. The only open water I saw was in the middle out from Holiday Resort. Rest of the lake was covered with ice. When I got home I went out to check the ice thickness in front of my place. Went out about 5 feet from shore and chopped a hole with the spud bar. Measured 2 inches of ice with my measuring stick. Went out to about 15 feet from shore, chopped another hole and measured just a hair under 2 inches. Went out another 5 feet and brushed away the snow with my boot as I had done with the other holes. Hit the ice with the spud bar and all I could hear was cracking going off in every direction. Retreated to the shore. Going to give it a couple of days and check again. Hope we don't get that snow for Saturday night and Sunday.

      Yeah I thought if that. Just looking for other opinions.

      Check craigslist see if there are any boats like yours on there. If so how much are they asking.
