    Wow, I'm having a fantastic time here at the school. Bill and Terry facilitate an environment that is completely relaxed, yet professional and ethical. These folks have went out of their way to be sure that all of the students are recieving top quality instruction, are comfortable with their accomodations, and realize their full potential in a minimal amount of time. We are mounting the animals we want in the poses we want (allows you to focus on the fish & game in your area), taking a walk through tannery tour, learning pricing and business management skills, and more. All with step by step instruction, guidance, and supervision. Second Nature sets the standard for taxidermy instruction. I'm proud to say that I'm a Second Nature School of Taxidermy Student. If you are considering attending taxidermy school, do yourself a favor and apply here.

    This school has taught me more than I could have ever learned on my own. Bill is a great instructor he can brake it down so anyone can learn what he is teaching. The class is a blast you can have fun and learn at the same time. If you are looking to go to a school you need to call Bill. Mounting the game that you want is a great idea. If the game you will mount most are deer then why go to a school that will make you mount something else. Bill will find the game you want to mount and I say THANK YOU BILL for a wonderful experience.
