taxidermy license

Do you have to have a taxidermy licence if you do not plan on making it a business and only doing it to get practice? What about for birds or does the la only apply to fur bearers?

I want to start learning how to do taxidermy and was looking to get some bird skins to practise on. I do not plan on making money or making it a business but i would like to practise. Do i need a licence to do so?
