    i am new to the art of taxidermy and was wondering where to start
  2. I would suggest finding out if your state has a Taxidermy Association, if so...go have fun ask lots of questions go to the seminars, then pick an animal you want to start with get good referance material for it, maybe even a video and go for it!, take it to your state show and compete, Listen to your critique and go from there. if you have absolutely 0 experience you could attend a school, but if you have any artistic abilities you should be able to do it on your own.
    You may also find somebody that lives close to you that would be willing to help you out or just oversee your first mount.

  3. Videos, Breakthrough magazine, and yes your state association. As far as a school, I think you would find a one on one seminar more helpful. If you can't start from these sources, take up another hobby.
