Re: How to Choose a Taxidermist

Then go to this link and read what it takes to be a PTACT and ask your self if it really matters if a taxidermist is certified or not. It has no reflection on the quality a taxidermist puts out their door.

Re: How to Choose a Taxidermist

no, what it does, is saves the customer the trouble of asking for insurance proof, proof they pay sales tax and are legit. And that the taxidermist has passed some sort of skill criteria. I DID NOT ever say they are the BEST in the industry, I said at least you know they are on the right track and not a, fly by night, just opened up last week, because I payed my $100 fee, taxidermist, that's all. How many of those taxidermist do you think are in business the fair, legal way???? not many! the PTACT program is a way to prove you are on the up and up.

Re: How to Choose a Taxidermist

I see there are only 22 PTACT members on the list out of how many PTA members? The numbers are not convincing me to become certified. If it were that important and beneficial to my business I think you should see more than 22.

Re: How to Choose a Taxidermist

Good call Fish! The public isn't dumb either. One does not need to pay a club every three years to bless them in order to stay on "the up and up." I'm a veteran of 19 years and maintain my credentials well without that program. The Association is great because of it's membership. The membership does not have to pay the extra tax to be considered first when looking for a taxidermist.

Looking at it from the PTA perspective, seemed wise. Such a program should generate more money for the PTA by more convention attendance and PTACT participants. But years of the program speaks for itself. FAIL! Just as many participants as Obama-care!

You don't need to be PTA certified to be an accomplished, thriving taxidermist.
