Re: is a taxi license required?

As the law is written right now.....yes you do. You are performing taxidermy (as described in the law) for another person for money. The same holds true for the person cleaning skulls.
However, if you are doing it for a friend and no money is exchanged.....

Re: is a taxi license required?

this is america, you should be able to do whatever you want with some animal remains you legally own. if you're going to get grief for doing it for money, trade him for a chicken or a sack of potatoes or something lol

Life's too short to hunt with an ugly dog.

Be careful there, that's considered bartering, the
same as paying.
Back in 1986 when the state made it a law to be licenced
I could'nt even mount any thing for my own son unless I was technally licenced.
Leagally you can only mount for your self (only) if you are not licenced.

I believe the Taxidermy Permit was first started back in the 40's or 50's. Not sure where you got "1986" but in 2003 the Taxidermy Exam was eliminated and control over actual Taxidermy licensing was handed to the PA Dept. of Agriculture. Most of the laws stayed the same.

I think thats a shame and theres probably more important issues to be tended to than taxidermy for the state legislature.

But now they dont get enforced.
