Hoosier Taxidermy!

Discussion in 'Training' started by LOCKED-UP, Mar 21, 2007.

  1. I have just started in the taxidermy field and have worked two ducks and am working on the habitat for the second (ringneck). It looks sweet, the biggest thing I have learned is patience and details.....everthing else falls into place. However, I only have the instruction from a video produced mid 90's.....pretty outdated; anyway does anyone know if there are any bird specialists around the central portion of the hoosier state that would mind my company? I would be more than willing to do whatever was asked of me and at the same time not get in the way or ruin my welcome..... Please let me know if anyone knows anything!!!!!

    I don't know that he is taking anyone in or not. Most of us have invested quite a bit of money into what we do and know. So if your looking for a freebie I don't know how he will respond. I have been approached by at least a half dozen people in the last year wanting to learn for free. The only reason I say this is that I have spent as much as $2,000.00 including travel to learn what I know about bird and waterfowl taxidermy. You have the best learning tool in front of you as you read this post. Use this and other publication's and video resources. Implement trial and error and you will gain more knowledge, skills are not learned over night.
