Just like all the other "reality" shows on TV. They have these "deadlines" for drama. That way the announcer can say "Will they make the deadline. Find out after this." then cut to a commercial. In real life if you or I take something in for taxidermy, to have a custom motorcycle made, to restore an antique car or any other such custom work you and I will get... "It'll be ready in 3 to 6 months, we'll call you."
I was suprised that someone would bring in an animal and ask for it in just a few days. I didn't think that it could be done that fast.

BINGO ! Shoot-it just nailed it. lolBesides the older couple, my overall favorite is still the fact of just putting something like this on TV. Man, as a sportsman, ya just gotta LOVE IT!... Plus, sorta shoving it right down PETA's throat.Frank
Do you want to know how they can do it that fast it's called editing .

In reference to your question yes it does take a lot longer to actually mount and finish these animals. We mounted that gator in about 3 days, but we had to go back a couple weeks later to redo it because it didn't have enough time to dry. So most of these mounts probably had to be redone after the show.

They seemed to be more concerned with us having some drama than showing the steps it takes to make a nice mount. Either way I think the show turned out pretty good.

#GPBCRANE * View Profile * View Forum PostsGPBCRANE is offline Registered UserJoin Date Apr 2011Posts 5 Well let me explain a little better. We had to paint the entire alligator before the skin was completely dry due to the filming schedule. Doing so makes the paint flake off over time. So a couple weeks later, after the filming had stopped we had to repaint the entire thing. The mount didn't have to be redone, just the paint. As for preparing the hides it really doesn't take very long. You have to flesh them, preserve them and they are basically ready to go. As for the drama at our shop, that is very rare. We hammed it up for the camera. The "wrong form" I cut was planned by me. It was a throw away form we weren't gonna use anyways. My brother and I get a long great. As a matter of fact I can not remember even getting into an argument with him, ever. We filmed for 48 hours and they only focused on him and yelling at each other.

I just paid $9.95 to find out that " Mounted in Arkansas" is not a taxidermy show.
I'm watching the new Swamp People right now, and there was a commercial for yet another taxidermy show called Mounted in Alaska. It's on History Channel and premiers Thursday April 7th.
