How Old Where You When You Started

Discussion in 'The Taxidermy Industry' started by 13 point, Jan 31, 2021.

  1. Started in 2013 at 33. Started as a hobby and evolved into a part-time gig. Did't really want to go full time until mid 2019. Still not full time but I am moving closer to making that happen. Want to start competing this year.
  2. Started at 10 in 1957 - Northwestern School of Taxidermy course.

    I mounted my first deer heads for money in 1984.. I have been involved in taxidermy at some level ever since then.. I have learned a lot since that time and I am still learning in 2021.. In all of those years I have never used an ear liner and never will... ;)
    For the last 15 years I have gradually dove deeper into learning the tanning aspect of this industry and what it takes to turn out a great skin for mounting.. It has been interesting.
