Title: List of Tutorials by Subject
Post by: Ken Edwards on April 22, 2008, 05:23:11 PM
This Category contains member-submitted tutorials showing step-by-step procedures for taxidermy and the related arts.

These tutorials were originally submitted in the taxidermy discussion categories, where they soon became hard to find amidst the thousands of questions and discussions. They have been moved to this category in order to arrange them in an easy-to-navigate section where educational subjects can be quickly accessed.

If you notice a topic in another category that you think would be a good addition to the Tutorial category, please feel free to nominate it for the Tutorial Category by clicking on the "Report to Moderator" link in the lower right corner of the post and adding "Nomination for Tutorial Category" in the comments section.

If you wish to create a new tutorial, feel free to submit it here. If you use off-site hosted photos in your tutorial (such as photobucket.com) please be sure NOT to move, delete or rename the photos in your photobucket account, as this will also remove the photos from your tutorial. If photos are deleted from an existing tutorial, the tutorial will be removed as well.

Ken, it was really just a lot of tattle tale'ing on my part.  If I saw something, I just hollered about it.  Thank you for recognizing that effort.  It's the good people here that have really made the category necessary though.  It's just awesome to see folks willing to share what they know...it's a LONG ways from the years of secrecy. 

We can't toot our own horns/report our own posts.  :(  (Although I admit I know some that have tried to toot their own horns...but never mind about that! :D)  If we try it tells us "You can't report your own post to the moderator, that doesn't make sense!"  Should we ask someone else to report it for us?  Maybe log out, come back to the thread as a Guest and then report it?  What would you prefer?

Ken/WASCO/everyone involved on y'alls end, thank you again, so very very much for doing this for us.  It's going to be a serious asset for so many people.  And it'll be a way for those who are "old timers" to share their knowledge for generations to come.  Thank you.  More than I can say...thank you.  ;)

Lisa, I'm sorry you can't report your own post. Hopefully when the Forum software is upgraded to the next version, I will be able to change this feature. But for now, you can do one of four things to nominate you own post. Here they are in the preferred order:

1. Have a friend nominate your post with the "Report to Moderator" function.
2. Log out and report your post as a guest.
3. Send an email to me at [email protected] (or just click on the envelope below my picture) with the URL of the post included in your email.
4. Send me a Personal Message (click on the speech balloon beneath my picture) with the URL of the post included in your message.

Post by: Lisa M on May 05, 2008, 12:14:46 AM
mysebring, if you go to the Terry Davis Learning Center, http://tdavistaxidermy.com/learningcenter.html, you can piece together how to get a raccoon done.  You also might look into buying a subscription to Breakthrough magazine.  A link to Breakthrough is in the upper right corner of any taxinet page under the Quick Links tab.  In the latest issue they had step by step instructions for how to do a gray fox.  Raccoons aren't much different in techniques.  Good luck and have fun.  ;)

Hi All,
          Is there anyone who can post a tutorial with pics on repairing and sewing up of damaged capes from big bullet holes? I'v got a few in and have always got them sewn up but some have looked much better than others. Just thought this might be helpful to some of the novices.

Thanks ...Lance

Deadwood...reference pictures have their own section.  If you go to the taxidermy.net forum home page:  http://www.taxidermy.net/forum/index.php and scroll down to where the deer, lifesize, birds, mammals & reptile topic are, you'll find sections labeled _______ reference photos.  See attachment.  ;)

Title: Re: List of Tutorials by Subject
Post by: Lisa M on August 23, 2009, 12:39:21 AM
are there any tutorials on skinning andmounting a cottontail rabbit?  Not sure where to look for this.


Hi fowl.  Let me teach you how to use the "Advanced search" option.  The tab for it is to the right of the normal "search" box.  

When you click on "Advanced search" it will take you to this page:  http://www.taxidermy.net/forum/index.php?action=search;advanced

On that page, type the word "rabbit" or "bunny" or "cottontail" or "itsy bitsy teeny weenie yellow polka dot bikini" in the "Search for" box.  Leave the rest of the settings the same...time parameters between 0 & 9999 days...by any * user...but do click on the "Choose a board to search in, or search all" spot.

Unclick "Check all".  Then check mark the "tutorials" section.  Or if you want to search in Beginnners, or Lifesize Mammals, click there...or if you're looking for information about, say the virtues of Krowtann vs JRTS ;D  you'd click on "Tanning".  ;)

Then click "Search".  That will give you all of the threads within certain categories that use the term you searched for.

By typing "Rabbit" in the search box, and using only the tutorial section, I found two threads that will help you.  

http://www.taxidermy.net/forum/index.php/topic,89688.0.html

and

http://www.taxidermy.net/forum/index.php/topic,54462.0.html

I don't see any tutorials that are directly about cottontails, but the methods used in those tutorials are sound and will serve you well.  Be aware that cottontail skin isn't very tough in my humble opinion and it'll serve you well to have 2-3 specimens to work on.  If you make a mistake on the first one, don't throw it out.  Keep using it...learn all you can from it, then do better on the next one.  

Good luck and have fun!  ;)

Post by: JerseyJays on February 10, 2012, 11:55:34 AM
im a contractor, and took a roof fan out of someones house... if you have access to one you can do this:

the motor is already strapped to a x bracket. remove fan blades.

screw it to a piece of wood and stand on edge. build a wood bottom and plexiglass sides/top for light

buy a wire wheel and it fits right on the auger.

drill a few holes through some nuts and washers, a few cotter pins to make the wheel spin with the auger and your are all set..

if you are somewhat mechanically inclined you can figure out where cotter pins need to go.. I will take a pic of mine later and post to help invision it..
