  2. well, I did 38 last year and I only could muster up 56 (all types) this year. I was looking to do over 100 but it looks like its still a long way off

    Just finished up the book work for 2009. 416 skulls for the fiscal year, I picked up 6 more taxidermist for the 2010 year in hope to top 500 for the coming year.

    my first year and ended up with about 40....about a dozen are freebies or discounted ones for buddy's.. I am hoping to get 100 actual paying customers next year....

    how do you clean over 400 skulls in a year ? I couldnt imagine getting that many - i am getting behind with just what i have, degreasing is taking longer then i hoped and i have no more room for more heads in my set up !!!
     
  8. 7 - and as far as I am concerned, that is 7 too many!

    Just set up, did around 25 I think. Or doing anyway. Took in that many. Degreasing takes forever. I could probably have them all and another 25 through the bugs without a problem in the time it takes to degrease 20 of them.

    First year and so far nearly 50. I have people calling now that have decided not to do a shoulder mount so I am expecting another 10 or so. I got several more than I expected.

    The other question would be, what is your turnaround time for the amount you do?

    46 plus some more on the way. Around 35 done and out the door.
