Always be on the best of terms with all your local taxidermists. Most will eventually be your best customers. Worry about being the best taxidermist AND the best businessman in your area or field. I call the local taxi's i know every fall and tell them what my deer prices are gonna be. Most do only deer, a low profit mount in our studio, and I get references from them for other, more profitable mounts all the time. Be a taxidermy businessman, not a deer mounter, and you will not have to worry.
