Although all taxidermist have different skill levels, I believe most are ethical and have a genuine concern about doing a good job. Finding time to organize and skin birds, toiling over greasy bird fat, meticulously washing them, building them, constantly studying and learning about your subjects, grooming them - grooming them - grooming them and then the all dreaded finish work. Only to have a client show up, put there measly $200 on the table and say the bird looks "nice". Well, being new to this taxidermy racket, but not new to running a business, it affects me. I understand that the customer is always right, I am not a thinned skinned person and I have been kicked around alot in business, so why when this happens do I want to politely hand them back their $200 take that "nice" bird and shove it up their bung hole, politely bounce a couple frozen birds off their heads and bid them a fine fairwell. Maybe there is an evolution that takes place, where a person doesn't care as much - Anybody ever been in the same boat? How do you handle it?
