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 ken@taxidermy.net (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.

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
