I like to do my finish work in batches. Wondering do you finish your deer heads in groups or one at a time. If in groups how many do you usually do per group?

one at a time, i do a more complete job that way.
I do groups of 3 or 4 max. Due to the small area I work in, I have to get the 3 or 4 out so I can start new ones. After I mount 3 or 4, I will work on capes, and ducks and stuff until they dry.
of about 4 to 6. Usually that's the ones I have mounted in one week, and when they are dry I do them all together since I have my materials out and can do it more efficiently this way.
Groups of 3 to 6, like Evelyn depends on the batch of heads that are ready and I have all the materials out anyway.
Because if I do more than that it means I had the first few hanging around too long.
Usually 8 is the number.
I typically do no less than two at a time. I have finished five in one day, but four is typically the norm. I flesh, turn, prep and salt four in a day.
