    You could start your learning by reading some of the various posts on this forum & by asking specific questions about things > ;D

    i thinking of doing a few yote shoulder mounts then maybe a few full body yote before i try a bobcat i would like to throw in a deer head or two for extra practice before doing the cat
     
  6. Get the breakthrough manuals, the basics are just that the basics. Even with videos dvds etc you cannt see some of the fine details.

    Look at joining KAT, in the association links their meeting is in Wichita this year. You can get some great seminars. Thats where to start.

    So far you have gotten some great info to start. Videos are great, you can always rewind. Having an experienced taxidermist critique you is very important. If you can get in with a local taxidermist and start skinning and odd stuff for him/her that is also good, not impossible, but could be hard. If you can get in the door then that will teach you alot. Learn from more than one and use what works for you. I had about 5 different taxidermists teach me different things and then I went to school in COLO. It was all good. Getting into a shop was hard but I didn't give up.

    If you are willing to travel Wegner's School of Taxidermy is worth checking out. Small class sizes and advanced techniques will help you excel. I received my diploma a little over a year ago and will recommend the school to any wanting to learn or expand on what they already know. Check out www.wegnersschooloftaxidermy.com if at all interested.
