    I have a young person who would like to learn taxidermy. I have been doing taxidermy for over 46 years and state and fed licensed. He would like to know how much i would charge him to learn taxidermy. I have no idea what the going rates are. Please e-mail [email protected] any idea will be helpful. Thanks Fred in PA.

    Hi Fred, its sorta like deer head prices. Everyone sets the figure that they think theyre worth. Long term teaching seems to work on a slide scale of sorts, as after the initial amount of teaching has been completed, the student starts to make you money too. Short term classes or training usually is more expensive, and done per day. Have fun!

    You've been doing taxidermy for over 46 years? Holy crap!
    How old are you? You should just teach for free! Just kidding.
    I teach one-on-one taxidermy as well. Bill is on the mark.

    If it helps, I paid $5000 for eight weeks (8 hour day/five day week) for learning the basics.
