    How does the Rick Carter A-Z compare to the Sallie Dahmes A-Z Whitetail Deer DVD? Is it better, or similar? The reason I ask is because I've seen the Sallie Dahmes DVD and I've learned quite a bit from just watching that, and I've even incorporated much of her techniques in my taxidermy and my deer mounts have improved greatly from just that. I just don't want to order another Whitetail DVD from someone else, if most of the info was already covered by Sallie... God, I hope my question doesn't start another blog war, and if it does I'm outa here for good, lol....

    Order it. I have both myself. While some of the basic techniques are the same, many have been improved upon. Rick's video is much more in-depth, the quality is immensely better, and no small details are omitted. You literally see the entire process from start to finish as if he's in the same room with you.

    Ron, we were hard on the guy who claimed God directed him to Don Holt. I didn't think it could get much worse than that. I was wrong. Michael/Nickie, do you guys need me to send you a few Handi-Wipes for that brown stain on your noses???

    Boar and Whitetail A-Z are both money well spent! They are DVD's that you'll keep for future reference! ;)

    Hmm, pasty white skin, knobby knees, glasses, thinning hair............but that other person didn't seem to have any of those issues so I know that one ain't you. ROTFLMAO
     
  16. Haha... I'm still standing.
    About Ron Carter's videos, all I was able to find from him in the McKenzie catalog is the A to Z Boar Shoulder mount...is it something that just isn't listed or do they not stock that one? Or do I just have to order from WASCO? Reason I'm asking is because I can get everything from McKenzie within 24 hours of ordering.

    whitetailslayer, its "Rick" Carter, LOL not Ron, and yes you need to order it from wasco, he works there, and they carry the video. It will give you VAST insight into the mounting of a whitetail deer. Young, Old, new to taxidermy or aged veteran, there is something in this video for everyone. good luck. ;)

    I watched this video last night. Very informative. Only question I have....In the video the rough fleshed it and then tanned it and then did the final fleshing. He used Krowtann. He did not pickle, shave then tan like most people recommended me to do. Is that because of the method of tanning? If I use Liqua-Tan then can I rough flesh, pickle, final flesh then tan? Can you do this before you Krowtann also if you wish?
