Re: I NEED opinions from SERIOUS TOP NOTCH taxidermist There is over 20 taxidermist in Arkansas listed here on Taxi.net and no telling how many are not listed, looks like there prices are around $350 to $400. Even your master class taxidermist in your area are less than $400. You will never get more than 10 a year if your $200 dollars more than your competition and your competition is the level of taxidermist they are. Man! i wish you the best but until you can get your time down I wouldn't quit your day job.
