    I've never tipped ours. Takes a little over a yr to get one back but the man stays swamped.

    I never really thought about tipping my taxi either. I'm not one of his best customers though, only have a couple heads.

    Ive never tipped a taxi. But I have offered to help in any way possible. Tend to get my mounts back a bit quicker than most. I think they like the help during busy season. I dont offer a hand in any thing but mine. If I screw up my own im ok with that.

    I am a taxidermist. To be honest I never expect a tip but if I do get one I am appreciative and remember that customer.

    I do taxidermy work as well, I have never received a monetary tip. But a referral is worth a lot, if you are pleased with their work than please refer them to other hunters.

    I have not ever tipped a taxidermist but I have given them capes from time to time and they do remember me when I bring in something to have mounted. The guy I use is swamped and turns work away but he always takes care of me.

    Every hunting season you miss is one you can not make up.

    I've been using Stan Martin in Reno. I really like his work...just wished he was closer. Anyone good in our neck of the woods? I would like to find someone closer that is good.

    I just took my buck down to Anthony Maxwell in Ceres. He does great work. While I was there I reluctantly asked him how far out he was (knowing the time of year) and his reply was "I don't know. It will probably be about 1-1/2-2 months". To say I was happy was an understatement. He is a really nice guy and great to do buisness with.

    No tips necessary. Maybe If he skins it for you or something but even then he shouldn't expect to get a tip. I would rather skin the animal my self as a taxidermist because it usually saves work down the road. (sewing)
