Griffith's Big Game Taxidermy School Student At Training

Discussion in 'Training' started by Big John, Jan 18, 2007.

  1. I want to congratulate Traven Rowe of Savannah, Ohio for completing my three day Deer Mounting course. We fleshed and tanned four deer capes and mounted two of his deer heads which he bought with him. I have attached photo's of Traven in action turning the ear's and making adjustments to the ears and eyes on his mounts. It was indeed a pleasure working with Traven.

    Now is the time for you to consider getting that much needed training. We offer the Best Instruction and our classes are strictly one on one. You bring your capes and antlers and you put them together under the Instruction of John Griffith who is considered one of the World's leading Instructor. Check out our website at www.griffithtaxidermy.com

    Thanks,

    John Griffith

    thanks john..schooling with john is a pleasure he is a very nice guy ,anyone wanting to learn to mount quality whitetail deer should seek out john its well worth the investment!!
     

  3. We had a very busy week here at Griffith's Big Game Taxidermy School. Traven Rowe came back for my advanced class for a week and we mounted 4 Whitetail's. Traven did his first pedestal mount which was a Hugh 8 pt from Ohio. Also, we altered different forms to create the pose he wanted.

    Now is the time to seek that training. Don't let time kill you in waiting to make a choice as to where you are going to seek that training. Here at Griffith's Taxidermy School (www.griffithtaxidermy.com) we only do one on one instruction and believe me it's the perfect environment for learning. John Griffith is considered one of the leading Instructor's in the World in Game Head mounting. So, contact us and get started.

    Below is some of Traven's work he did this past week.

    Traven was a pleasure to work with and his work really shows that he intends to be one of the BEST Game Head Taxidermist in the World. Congratulations again to Traven Rowe of Savannah, Ohio.
