I'm looking for some opinions... sort of taking a poll I guess. Here's the deal- my husband is starting out in the gunsmithing business. I was thinking of starting my own business which has absolutely nothing to do with gunsmithing, but just had a brain fart!!!!! What if I opened up my own taxidermy shop alongside my husband's shop??? Coming from what I'm assuming is a mostly male reading audience, what are your ideas and opinions on this??

(Last day of antlerless and still nothing!!!!)

Re: Taxidermy???

Well I think if you were both good at your craft, that would be awesome! I would certainly be donating alot of $$ at the same place instead of 2!
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

Re: Taxidermy???

There is a rash of humor flowing across the board. Hunting seasons must be over [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Here's my tho'ts.

If you're willing to pay the price to become the best that you can be, to overcome all of the challenges that you encounter and be savvy enough to develop your talents in the most beneficial direction and your husband does the same, you'll out do him hands down. Really...

Pay the price, do the work, the money will come, if that's what you want. If you just want to make money it'll be a little more difficult.

Hubby'll make stuff that kills 'em. You'll bring back to life and the hunters experience will live on forever and be shareable(if that's a word).

It will take way much more commitment than a brain fart, really! Its like anything else you desire to excell at. You gotta really want to do it!
I may be the slowest guy on the mountain . . . . but . . . . I'm on the mountain!

Re: Taxidermy???

taxidermy is a wonderful trade! but like roy said you have to pay your dues! there is so much tranning involved in taxidermy, and the practical expirence need to produce a high quality mount is something every prospective taxidermist should seriously look at before jumping in! There are way to many so called taxidermists with little to no expirence out there doing game for very cheap prices, and rushing it out the door with no care in what it looks like! I hope you do decide to become a taxidermist ! but please do all you future clients a favor and learn first, then compete so you can really learn!!! then start your business!
