You are on one of the best web sites for hints and tips on taxidermy. Hands on instruction is still the best bet to learn taxidermy. But, search the archives. That will answer most any question you have.

Robert I'm also just learning about taxidermy. Just a note about videos. Be careful on where and what you buy. I spent $200 at Van Dykes on videos a few were good quality with a lot of good and useful information. Several videos were so bad I called and complained about the video quality. They were so snowy like they were copied several times. I have also got some from McKenzieof these they were all of good video quality and great for someone new. If you have any questions on which were good or bad just write. Tony

If you cant find it here...

I left the skin on the deer as it hung for 5 days. Can I still tan the hide with the skin on or is the hair going to slip? The temp was around 35 deg.

hair on/ hair off?
