I'm interested in pursuing taxidermy as a career and wondered if any of you folks might be able to point me in the right direction in terms of getting the best education available in my area. I live in central North Carolina. I thought about Piedmont Community College but, as far as I can tell, it looks to me like their taxidermy cirriculum is no longer available. I have a family so I would not be able to attend any of the out-of-state options, unfortunately. What do you folks suggest? How did you get started? Any help would be much appreciated.

You might check with Montgomery Community College. They have an part-time evening program as well as a full-time day program. Also, depending on where you live, you might consider Johnston CC in Smithfield. I took small game and birds there. Classes meet one night per week per course. Classes are like 6 or 8 weeks long. Cost ~$55 plus you have to provide all your mat'l and specimens. Email me if you need more info.
