    nice mounts....looks like your keeping busy jon....see ya soon!
     
  2. I want to say Thanks to Traven Rowe of Savannah, Ohio for selecting Griffith's Big Game Taxidermy School for his training needs. Traven is what I will call one of my advanced Students because he has been here several times before. He started out here two years ago and now in the advance stages of learning taxidermy as you will see in the below photos. Traven is a fast learner and it is always a pleasure working with him. This week we mounted two full bodied black bears in what I will call special poses.


    Now is the time to consider seeking that much needed training. Our school is strictly one on one training and this really creates the best environment for learning. John Griffith is one of the World's leading Big Game Taxidermy Instructor's. So, look at this thread and you make the decision whether it's worth it or not. Also, check us out on the web at www.griffithtaxidermy.com

    Thanks,

    wow john what a intense...week .....them bears are something...john is one of the best when it comes to teaching someone what they are doing its not only that ..what really helps things set in is no matter what your doing with john he explains why you need to do it and what will happen if you don't...(example)john says ruff the form up...now you may wondering why you want to scratch something up for two hours...after your sweating and ready to say this is dumb...john explains if you don't ruff this form the hide paste on the skin will not stick right without drumming.....and 2 days of mounting is gone to waste...john goes into depth detail on everything eyes on game heads...sculpting forms...etc...the main thing i like about schooling with john is.... well besides his singing and listening to Tadio...is the quality work that he helps his students to put out...do you want to mount a deer head or do you want to mount a deer head with quality..yea i may sound like a spokes person for john...but in all thats not it I'm trying to help the new guys.. i went down that long road of wasting thousands of dollars to learn and be taught the halfass poor quality way...and trust me why waste your money...research who you school with and make sure they can back up their talk...in my eyes hands down john is one of thee BEST!!  Thanks john ...its been a pleasure and i will always be back to freshening my skills and learn my next step in the taxidermy world.....

  9. I just want to say Thanks to Dan Napier of Stanton, Kentucky for selecting Griffith's Big Game Head Taxidermy School for his Training Center. We really had a very busy two days putting together some pretty Big Deer taken here in Kentucky. I really enjoyed working with Dan who is a very talented person. Dan can just about do anything. Thanks again Dan for selecting my school for your training.

  12. I would like to express my Thanks to Kurt Hergenrother of Pleasant Plains, Illinois for selecting Griffith's Big Game Taxidermy for the Third time for his Whitetail training needs. Kurt is spending 6 days here with us and 3 of them have passed and we have mounted 3 whitetails shoulder mounts during this time frame. Stay tuned for the other 4 that we hope to get mounted by the end of this week. Kurt is truly an inspired Whitetail taxidermist and takes everything very serious. You can tell how serious he really is when you look at his whitetails.

    Now is the time to get that much needed training. Contact John Griffith for a class that will meet your personal needs. Remember all of our classes are one on one. Check us out on the web at www.griffithtaxidermy.com

    Good Job Kurt,Those mounts look good!! Seems you have a good teacher....Tom King
     
  18. OK, here is the other 4 deer heads that we mounted here this week. This made a total of 7 deer heads that Kurt did here this week. All of these Big Bucks are what I would call Trophy type. The last two bucks officially scored P&Y 184 just this past season and were taken locally there where Kurt lives. Thanks again Kurt for selecting Griffith's Big Game Taxidermy School for your learning center. I really enjoyed working with you and the results speak for themselves. Best.
