    Hello all,

    My name is Mark and my girlfriend wants to get into taxidermy. Her birthday is the 30th of this month and I want to get her a starter kit. I found a few good squirrel ones online but my question is where can I get the skin to mount in Las Vegas? Can anyone help? Thank you.

    Hello,
    It does not have to be a squirrel to start. Really a racoon is easier to start with.
    I would also suggest she start with a shoulder mount racoon,coyote,oppossum,etc.

    Let me know I can help.

  3. We have a salt dryed black squirrel or a wet tanned coon, salt dryed muskrat?
     
  4. I would have to disagree with the statement easiest thing to start with being a raccoon. I just got done doing one and been doing taxidermy for three years now. I started with a squirrel but the easiest I have found so far is a whitetail deer. The easiest pocket book wise is a squirrel. But each person has a different opinion. You can do a squirrel with virtually no tools and a real low budget. Good luck in whatever you choose to start her out with.

    if you want to get her squirrels, I sell them taxidermy skinned 3 for $60 and that is postpaid. they are skinned with the tail bone out, but the head and feet left in, frozen raw, and delivered that way. they are a cheap enough item she can mess some up and not be out any great amount. anyone else want any, let me know. I won`t ship singles as it is just not monetarily feasable due to the low price.
