The Taxidermy Industry / Re: What's your hourly shop time
« Last post by JuJu Bee on Yesterday at 11:37:02 PM »
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.

I like to use some of Jonas custom paints.
Dark Gold # 19-1011 is a perfect match in my opinion.

thats a long way to try and stretch it shut. you can soften the skin and try again. but it could pull from the eyes.
Crappie or Walleye.  Especially replicas.

3/4" on the bad side. The whole incision from the Y to aroun the eyes and all in between looks like it was skinned with a butter knife
Tanning / Young's Fur Dressing
« Last post by oldshaver on Yesterday at 06:47:31 PM »
I started my own small tanning operation as of 9/1/2017! This will be my one and only announcement.

All North American, except Large bison Bulls. Some African, depending on my workload of North American. After close to 30 years of working for a couple of the biggest tannerys in the nation, I decided to give it a go on my own.

My experience includes  decades in a supervisorial capacity, responsible for the tanning and shaving of sometimes literally thousands of skins per week. Pretty much anything you can think of, I have tanned. From elephant to mink. Being a former shaving instructor, my shaving is impeccable, and you will be hard pressed to find better.

I have also developed two paint-on tans for the Taxidermist that chooses to tan their own skins. Along with a complete line of other tanning products, from oils to degreasers, etc The two tans are called Trubond, sold through Trubond, and Tanzall, sold through Jim Allred Taxidermy supply, and Research.

My experience and knowledge speaks for itself. I can be reached at oldshaver52@gmail.com

Thanks for your time, Aubrey R. Young

P.S.  I will still come to the forum from time to time,  and try to help anyone I can,  just as I have always done!
