Taxidermy is the practice of preserving animal heads, skins, or full bodies, usually via stuffing them. Many hunters and fishermen can do it themselves or take the animal they killed or caught to a taxidermist. Common animals that have taxidermy practiced on them include deer, moose, elk, bison, caribou, bears, turkeys, ducks, geese, pheasants, quails, doves, various species of African animals, and various species of fish. Despite many artists being liberal and opposed to hunting and fishing, there are still some who like taxidermy and view it as an art form, while respecting the hunting and fishing lifestyle.
