    Hey John,
    Just wanted to take the time and thank you for the most informative 6 days of gamehead training I've had. I can honestly say I now have the foundation to create the ALIVE look I've been looking for. Your hands on approach and the way you explain things are second to none. If anyone out there is on the fence as to go to a expensive/overcrowded school or attend John 's workshop. Go with the workshop. I made the mistake going to a expensive/overcrowded school and it took John's workshop to straighten me out. You can't go wrong with training by a 2 time world champion in gameheads.

    GIT-R-DONE !!

    A WORD ABOUT JOHN GRIFFITH: I have not attended John's actual school, but, I did have the privilege to have his help years ago. His knowledge and assistance helped me progress substancially. He helped me complete my 1st lifesize WT and made me aware of the importance of reference material and other details as well. I now have no problem getting $525 for a basic WT mount. The student's work that i've seen on here looks great- keep up the great work!! Thank You John for your help!

    PS He got that beautiful Sika skin from me years back and he loves Bologna too!! Wally Taylor- Maryland
     
  7. Hey Walt, Thanks for those kind works and I haven't forgotten when we put that Full Body Whitetail together. Been some time now and I believe your Father was there to supervise us; I really liked him. I just want people to know that Walt Taylor is an Outstanding Whiteail taxidermist in that Eastern Shore, Hurlock, Cambridge Maryland area. Oh, Yes I still do like Bologna especially Oscar Mayer thin sliced. Ha......

    Take care and again thanks for those Kind Words.... Oh, I forgot to mention that if anyone needs any Jawsets for a sika deer o/m contact Walt. He has his own line that he molded and they are Excellent....

During these 3 days we discussed the mounting process in detail and applied those techniques to achieve our goal of mounting a successful whitetail shoulder mount.

    Wow, phenominal work!! Shannon's deer really have that "big buck look" not just the racks, those help, but in the neck and head as well. Are those repros or original horns? They look pretty darn good. Great work to all your students.
     
  15. Jimmy thanks for those kind words and YES those are reproduction racks that Shannon Jones used and they were purchased off e-bay and the sellers name is whitepineswamp aka Trophy Rack Reproduction. He produces some of the most realistic racks made and they are easy to work with. Those forms are None Other than MEDER manikins. Thanks.
