    I was considering trying my hand at taxidermy. I was wondering if y'all might be able to give me some ideas as to what the essential beginner tools might be.

    The archives. Do some reading right here on Taxidermy net. Just about any answer you'll need is here.
    Also you should check into your state association. You could learn a lot and meet great people willing to help you.
    Good luck and welcome to the world of taxidermy. ;)

    They are just insinuating I'm a big bad meany :D
    Truth is I like helping people but some (Not you) just don't use common sense. I just have a bad habit of telling them how I really feel. ::) :D

    Hillbilly i myself as a beginner went ahead and bought the rick carter DVD on mounting whitetails, knowing i wasn't starting with one i figured id go ahead and learn since i will do them eventually, and in that video i just bought everything he was using and that has been a good starter for me in the tools category, oh and if you do get that one than do research on the krowtann. that has seemed to be a touchy subject on taxi net, i bought it without reading into it and have used it and honestly don't know whether to use it or not because it seems to be so controversial on both haters and users.

    Ahhh the old Krowtann vs. other tans. It's the same with DP vs tan or bondo ears vs ear liners arguments. Fun reads but all opinions.
    You have to play around and experiment with just about everything in taxidermy. Like clothes shopping, you need to trying on different shirts and shoes to figure out which fits you the best.
    And I agree 110% on Rick Carters A to Z DVD.
