    Worked in a paper mill for 20 years. Lost my job in 2007. Started Antler Cabin Lighting in 2008, making antler lamps, fire place tools and other things with antler. In the process of adding furniture to the website.
    I went to A.I.T school of Taxidermy back in 1985, working full time and lots of over time at the mill didn't leave much time for Taxidermy so I gave it up. I have been thinking about taking in some deerheads this fall though.

    This is an old post but it is interesting to see some of the same names from 3 years ago still here. I wonder how many who were students back then have graduated onto more exciting things - most of the European skeleton people seemed to be students.

    I never put in my real job back then. I work for a reasonably large Natural History Museum. For the first 18.5 years I was a preparator in Birds and Herps. I prepped study skins and skeletons of birds 3 days a week and 2 days a week worked prepping herps or in the collection. In 1998/9 I moved on to be a collection manager of the same two sections after lots of people left and primarily deal with loans, visitors, databases, care of the collection, education, and a small amount of preparation.

    You must have a fantastic job PA!

    As for myself, still a student actually!
    Last time I posted here (about 3 years ago in fact) I had just completed my Bachelor degree in biology. Since then I got a Master degree in paleontology, and moved on to a PhD in the same field (with a lot of developmental biology added to it), and I'm dealing mainly with sharks and rays.
