Your busy months in Taxidermy?

A real taxidermy post and about time, huh? LOL

Our busy months in Colorado start from mid to late september and continue through December for the big game season. Of course, we get work shipped into us year around. And some people freeze their trophies until they get the money to bring it in.

Was wondering what are your busy months and what state are you in?

Thanks in advance for your answers.---KIM

I have mounted Deer in the past, but all I do is fish now. I live in the Finger Lakes region in New York, but I get quite a few fish from Lake Ontario and its tributaries. I'm the only one who mounts fish in my area. Most of the other taxidermist around here quit mounting fish and just do big game and birds because of backlog. I've been mounting fish for twenty six years and they are my passion. I guess I'm lucky to be busy all year long because of where I live.

In Mississippi

my busiest month is January...but it is REALLY hectic during the week after Christmas, through New Years Day.

my busy months are the ones with the letter 'R' in them.

That is when I get the work, then I start mounting in late spring. My summers are probably the busiest since I only do this part time and still try to get out and shoot when I get the chance on some weekends.
