What is a lot of Taxidermy work

Submitted by FishFall on 11/10/04 at 9:17 PM. ( )

How much work does the average taxidermists take in a years time? Fish, Replicas, Birds and Fur work. Just wondering? On an average maybe 100 mounts or 200 or More?

150 deer heads on the average, plus a few dozen other game heads; elk, exotics, various african. I do about fourty or so fish a few dozen birds and about twenty turkeys and various life size small game mammals. I know that is no huge amount of work but I am a one man shop and it seems like I am working my arse off all the time. Time to go up on the prices...again.

for a one man shop that is a lot of work you are taking in. I am a one person shop as well (with help from my better half on the habitats and form alterations)and take in about 100 shouldermounts and about 20 lifesizes a year. Not counting all the small stuff like tanning, antlermounts and skulls. A little more for us wouldn't hurt.

the local full time guy around here....

does 300 hundred deer heads a year as well as a few other misc mounts of fish and birds. He is a one man shop. I only do a dozen or so.

if you do that many heads how do you find time to do anything else, taxidermy or otherwise. It seems like most taxidermist do deerheads more than anything else and maybe fish the least?
