I agree with Kathy 100%....I doubt any single poster has ever done a P & L report on each and every mount or species to KNOW exactly what they are actually making and what exactly what their costs were.
The part taxidermist miss most is when the key goes into the lock in the morning....and when it goes into the lock at night....YOU ARE ON THE CLOCK. You don`t start counting when you put your hands on a mount. I GUARANTEE a lot of you are making NO WHERE NEAR what you think you are making.
"Shop rate" is a useless idea, it reflects Extra Work or repair work. I could say $500 a hour, if I don`t ACTUALLY MAKE THAT what does it matter. The taxidermy industry is in DIRE need of business sense and application. Just like every other business on the planet.
