I am just getting started with taxidermy. I have only mounted one head. I have learned a lot thanks to you all on here though. But my question is this. I took a deer head to a taxidermist two years ago to have mounted. I got the mount back and it looked good. I was/am very happy with it. But I just found out that another guy that was getting trained by the taxidermist is the one who actually mounted my deer. I don't mind and I probably wouldn't have had a problem with it if the taxidermist would have just asked me instead of me finding out two years later that some trainee did my mount. Does this happen often? I would think it would be at least common courtesy to ask the customer. I took my head to him because I liked the quality he does not a trainee. I would think if you were training someone they should have their own specimen to work on or get the ok from the customer.
