I have got to say that Troy is one bad ombre when it comes to taxidermy.  I had an amazing time at Artistic School of Taxidermy for 21 days. Not anything bad to say at all.....the food was freaking awesome and the hospitality even better. I learned ALOT while in idaho (even a little Kooskia culture) lol and also made a new life long friend. Thank you again for teaching me what you did and I am looking forward to coming back one day! If I could give any advice to anyone it would be to definitely give Artistic School of Taxidermy a shot, you will not be disappointed! Thanks again Troy.

Artistic School of Taxidermy  Recent Student Pictures 5/14/2017   Once again, I had the pleasure of a return student coming back to learn more.  Lance decided to tackle large life-size mammals this time.  He soon realized they are not as easy as gameheads.  With all the frustrations aside, Lance did a great job on his two mountain lions.  Thanks again for choosing ASOT!

I was as green as they come when it came to taxidermy, so I did my research on taxidermy schools and decided that ASOT was the right fit for me.  I emailed and talked with Troy on several occasions before booking a 10 day bird course for late February 2017.  Troy picked me up from the airport and on the way to his house (which was as good or better than everyone said it was.). I told him "I wasn't an artsy fartsy kind of person".  He said he had something for me the next morning.  That next morning I showed him how non artsy fartsy and non-detail oriented I really was.  Troy wasn't deterred and has the patience of a saint.  There was another student there learning birds who was also named Russ.  It didn't take long and we didn't make it hard for Troy to tell us apart.  When it came to the flesher I put holes everywhere and Russ ripped things, so I became "Holie Oly" and he was "Rippin Russ".  Troy stuck with me through 10 days, most of which were 10-12 hours in the shop.  Troy gave me the tools and confidence needed to make an artistic mount, not just how to do bird taxidermy.

Looking Forward to Coming Back for Further Training

hello everyone, this is Russ Harris (now known as Rippin Russ after quality time spent on Troys Flesher!) after recently selling my business I decided to try something I thought I could love and maybe make a buck doing it. With a serious passion for waterfowl hunting I decided to give bird taxidermy a try. From online research and a short conversation with Troy on the phone, I knew ASOT was the school to try. after really struggling the first two days, I had my doubts about loving this NOT. thanks to Troy I learned I had patience and possibly I could do this. He lets you work at your own pace with no pressure but still teaches a great attention to detail with no shortcuts. The atmosphere, meals, accommodations and above all the instruction is all first class! After just nine days I returned home with the knowledge of a trade I love and can make a buck. Thanks Troy keep up the good work. And I can't forget a thanks to Oly my partner in crime and fellow student, you need to trade that badge in for a scalpel full time! Keep that flesher warm Troy ill be back!!

Artistic School of Taxidermy  Recent Student Pictures 5/21/2017   Here is a nice mountain lion Cody did while he was here.  I meet Cody at a Taxidermy Show last summer and he said he would like to learn how to do a good cat.  Tackling large life-size mammals is not an easy task, but Cody pulled it off and did a fantastic job on his lion!  Cody, you were fun to teach!  Send me pics when you get it all done, and as always, thanks again for choosing ASOT!

I spent a week with troy back in April. After already having some taxidermy experince Troy really expanded my knowledge going into more in depth ways of mounting. He really showed my how to bring my mounts to life! I would recommend anyone wanting to learn taxidermy to give Troy a call.

I just completed 8 awesome days with Troy (May 2017). I had a great time and I learned way more than I ever imagined or expected.  During my time there, I completed an elk, mule deer and whitetail deer. I would highly recommend Troy and the Artistic Taxidermy School to anyone who wishes to learn the art of Taxidermy.  The accommodations were top notch and the view was amazing.. I look forward to returning to learn full body mounts...If anyone has any questions, feel free to contact me.......Thanks Fred

Artistic School of Taxidermy  Recent Student Pictures 6/10/2017   I had the pleasure of a return student coming back to learn more.  Toni learned the finer points of game heads and turkeys.  We were only able to do base colors on the turkey head and the pig and deer were still not dry to finish, but as you can see they came out great.  Excellent job Toni!  Thanks again for choosing ASOT!

Artistic School of Taxidermy  Recent Student Pictures 6/18/2017   I had the pleasure of instructing Logan on the begining aspects of gameheads, birds and small and medium lifesize.  Logan traveled from North Dakota and put in some long days of training.  As you can see it paid off.  His results were nothing shy of fantastic!  Logan, way to stick it out!  I enjoyed teaching you the art, and thanks again for choosing Artistic School of Taxidermy!
