Answer:

you do not need a taxidermy license to work on wildlife you harvested.

Idaho Code 36-601 reads:

Any person who at any time within the state of Idaho desires to mount, preserve or prepare for preservation any of the dead bodies of any wildlife or any part thereof not personally taken by him in compliance with the provisions of this title... must obtain a taxidermist....license
