46th most heavily regulated occupation
(Last updated April 24, 2012)
Taxidermists prepare, stuff and mount skins of birds or animals in lifelike form.
Twenty-six states require a license for taxidermists, though all but one require only an application and fees. Maine requires three exams.
These light burdens result in the occupation ranking as one of the least difficult to enter in this study. Its ranking of 46th most widely and
onerously licensed reflects the large number of states that require a license.
