  2. I just wanted to say Thanks to Doug Dillinger of Shelburn, Indiana for choosing Griffith's Big Game Taxidermy School for his training needs. Doug choose my 5 day class and we fleshed out two deer capes and then tanned them. Then we mounted up 4 sh mts.We had a ball and I really enjoyed working with Doug because he was tireless full of energy and ready to go;what a go getter. Anyway, we discussed many things pertaining to the anatomy of the whitetail deer especially the eyes, ears and muzzle area. Finally we did the finishing work on a whitetail mount that really show the details. Also it was a pleasure for me to present Doug with my Certificate of completion in which he earned dearly. Thanks Doug for selecting my Big Game Head school of your training and I really appreciate your business.

    If anyone else out there is contemplating any Big Game Head Training give me a call at 606-376-4380 or email me. We would enjoy working with you to get you on the right path. Thanks to all my Past Students who have made me what I am in my Training program. I enjoyed working with everyone of you and I hope you enjoyed my program. Thanks.

    Best,

  5. I want to express my sincere THANKS to Eric Ealy of Russel Springs, Ky. Eric came down last week and took my 3 day deer class in which we fleshed out two deer capes and then tanned them. We then spent the rest of the class studying the anatomy of the whitetail and then using live references to mount up two deer heads that he had brought for his class. It was a pleasure working with Eric and I expect to see him again soon for his finishing class.

    Now is the time to consider that needed training in Game Heads. If you feel like you want to discuss some type of Big Game Head training just email me or call. We really appreciate your business. Many Thanks and Happy Turkey Day coming up to all my fellow Taxidermist.

    Hey John, hope all is well. I really enjoyed the class and have started some of my own mounts for myself and some friends. So far so good. I am thinking about trying a turkey class. Any advice or references? Anyone you cant go wrong with John's class very informative and John makes it easy to learn. I went into class with little to no knowledge and John took it in stride and I learned a ton.
    Thanks again John.

    Can anyone give me some info or contact information of a taxidermy place in Canada? Specifically in the province of Ontario close to Ottawa?

    Thanks for anything you can pass on.

  18. We just wanted to say THANKS to Fabian Begley from Jackson Co., Ky for coming down and spending 3 days with us learning how to mount up a couple whitetail Deer. We fleshed out two deer capes and then tanned them and then we studied parts of the whitetail deer like the eye setting, ear butt placement an skin alignment. I really enjoyed working with Fabio who was very eager to learn an a heck of a nice guy. Best of luck in the Future to you and I wish you the BEST.

    If anyone else out there is thinking about seeking training in Big Game Head mounting just take a look at us. Last Aug 24th here in KY we won Best of Show at the 24th annual Deer Classic held in Powderly, Ky with our Deer Head Mount. We just hope you take a close look at us because we have a proven record. Thanks.
