...it take for you to make in the 45000 to 50000 dollar range after paying your supplies and overhead but not taxes. I realize most may not be there but if you are any information would help. Also, if you are supplementing your income with something besides taxidermy (ex.. meat processing) info on that would help too. Lost my job and weighing my options. I have benefits through my wife. So, I would have low overhead, supplies, retirement of some kind, and taxes. I know there is not much of a way to answer the question with all the variables involved but I am kind of overly lost right now and any help is appreciated.
