Best is the one you can make work.

you need the deer manual from WASCO

People many of the questions you are asking are covered in the Breakthrough manuals. You need to get them before diving head first into trying tanning or taxidermy.

They are text books, with information that is current!

Somethings have changed a bit, but those books will teach you the basics.

With good basics you can then advance to harder animals and tanning.

Now if you cannot afford the books maybe you better think about finding another hobby.

On top of that the answers you are seeking are already posted here, use the search

Wooo, Scared me.

and dont have any idea what a whip stitch is or a locking stitch, it much easier to see in a book than to explain here. Beside the fact FIVE YEARS of archives.
