    way too long, should be more like 12-16 weeks on smaller game.

    I try to have the bulk of my work completed within 6-8 months. so it may take between 2-8 months. I have heard from some of my clients that they have waited up to three years to have trophies sent back from S.Africa.
    So yes you have waited far too long in my opinion.

    Red stag I had done was about 12 - 18 months, can't remember exactly. If their work is good it's worth waiting for - you'll be looking at it on the wall for much longer than you wait for it to be finished!

    Six months ish, 19 months and two years for a "normal" non specialist mount i believe is taking the p i ss i would certainly be asking , why? also id be asking if its not started can i have it back and take else where.
    i can recommend someone i use down this way an i bet she would turn them round at about 8 months max.

    Personaly i would of asked the Taxidermist what sort of time period we are looking at to begin with
    As some taxidermists specialise in certain fields and often pass on work to another taxidermist in the field the item is in
    No issues with this as you want the best job done regardless of who does it
    If a uk taxidermist I expect a 6 month turnaround unless you know they are particularly busy , or they are doing yours at a discount rate
    At that rate when ever
    If being done from abroad around 24 months is exceptable
    The other thing which you did not mention is the name of your taxidermist
    As that may make a difference to some of the comments due to inside info
