PROCESSING
 
Processing of the alligator is only included in certain hunts. The hunts where processing is not included, we can process your alligator for you at an additional charge. The cost of the processing of your alligator will depend on the desired use of your alligator.
Clients who plan on having their hide tanned for product (belly hide) such as boots, purse, belts, etc. and are having the head shoulder mounted or table mounted or having the head used in a glass table mounted environment (such as the one pictured below) will have their alligator skinned using one method. The cost for this method of skinning is based on $20.00 per foot.
Clients who plan on having a full body mount or are having it utilized for any rug type mount will be skinned using a different method. The cost for this method of skinning is based on $25.00 per foot.
 
We have an ice plant and cold storage available to us for use in our hunts. Your alligator will need to be iced down and stored for 24 hours prior to processing. We also supply any ice for the hunt as well as any additional ice for your coolers to pack your meat. We recommend clients bring a large ice cooler (60 qt. or larger).
All meat processed from these hunts may not be sold to other individuals. The meat can be given away to other individuals by the trapper or agent but cannot be sold commercially.
 
TAXIDERMY
 
We have several reputable taxidermists which specialize in alligators and can handle all aspects of mounting, shipping and can be trusted to handle your taxidermy work.
 
Our clients are issued a written receipt for any taxidermy work prior to their departure. We list the CITES tag number of the clients alligator on the taxidermist receipt.
 
Our taxidermist’s pick up the skins or mounts from our headquarters and transfer them back to their studios. They will contact you at that time concerning your mount, cost of any taxidermy work being preformed, deposit on the work, etc.
 
Additional charges for shipping hides, heads and showcases are based on the taxidermist’s costs.
The alligator coffee table or showcase pictured above is approximately five feet long, two feet wide and thirty inches in height. The case shown contains a shoulder mount of an alligator approximately eleven feet in length.
 
Prices on taxidermy work depend on the size of the alligator and the type of mount desired.
The prices listed below are general prices subject to change and don’t include shipping and handling.
 
Head Mounts are measured in inches from the distance from center eye to end of nose. They come in three basic types. Table top heads with felt are $40.00 per inch. Table top heads with a back shell or the jowls of the gator included are $50.00 per inch. Wall shoulder mount with a wooden plaque similar to a deer head mount are $55.00 per inch.

Hides being tanned for product (belly hide) such as boots, purse, belts, etc. all depend on the type of finish required and the size of the alligator hide.
