This past week I attended Andersons Whitetail Taxidermy School in western NY. I couldn't be happier with the knowledge I came home with, as well as all the tools and supplies I got to bring home! I work full time, and personally I don't have the time or the money to go thru a full taxidermy course, so this week long course was perfect for me! We started out monday morning on measuring, cape cutting, and fleshing. Bill and Ed Anderson were great teachers and it was very personable. And very patient with shaky fleshers like me haha. We did everything hands on, setting the eyes, rebuilding the ears, splitting the lips, everything I needed to know with mounting a whitetail. Every question I had was answered, and by the end of the week I took home my very first whitetail mount that I did on my own. We covered everything from pickling and tanning to repairing the holes I made fleshing to the detail painting. I would highly recommend this course. If your from out of town, there is good lodging not too far away with everything you could need resturants wal-mart etc. I hated the week to be over with, but it was a great feeling walking away with the knowledge that Bill and Ed shared with us. They have a website whitetailtaxidermyschool.com, and if any of you have any specific questions just pm me and I will get back to you.
