Just curious if anyone knows the easiest steps to take to get started in taxidermy? I have learned how to do European mounts (of course, easy), but would like to know the easiest and cheapest way to get started as money is tight while trying to teach myself. Had an opportunity to apprentice under someone, but can no longer get in touch with that person. I have ALOT of animals (deer, raccoon, coyote, hog) that I need to fletch and tan in my freezer from last year to practice on. Need to clear out for this year, hahaha. So any info would be extremely helpful along with the shortcuts in chemicals. I know that there are a lot that you can get at a hardware store instead of ordering through a dealer. Thank you in advance for any help given.
