    Hi everyone,
    I have some questions that I cannot find an answer to. The Pratt office for the KDWPT doesn't know the answer, the Kansas Association of Taxidermists doesn't know the answer, so I figured I'd ask around here before going to a lawyer.
    I want to practice small time personal taxidermy and tanning in my home in Kansas. I am talking 2 or 3 personal furbearer mounts a year total. No deer. I want to buy raw foxes from fur farms and other collectors to tan and mount for myself.
    That being said, do I need a fur buyer's license? Do I need a Taxidermy license?
    If I am buying from fur farms and collectors, they will NOT have a trapping license number to document furs with.
    I want to eventually tan furs for others small time. Do I need a license to keep other people's raw furs in my freezer until I tan them?
    A fur dealer to me is someone who drives a truck around and buys from trappers/auctions for the fashion industry. I do not want to do that. I want to collect some pelts for myself and tan them myself but I do not want to break any laws by having them in my freezer.
    Kansas taxidermists, what licenses do you need/have??
    Thank you.
