I'm just starting out and have done one deer and one bobcat, working on my second of both and am wondering what would you consider to be the most essential tools to have for doing shoulder mounts/small lifesize mounts? I am trying to get a few tools but I want to get the ones that are most practical. I have always been interested in taxidermy and have just recently started my first few personal mounts because I had a little extra money, but I want to better them and strive to be the best I can. I am in college and working as much as possible to support myself but don't have alot of spending money to play with, hence why I want the most practical tools for the time being, until out of school. Thanks a lot, Matt P.S.- I had decided in the beginning that instruction was the most important thing to have first so I bought instructional videos before I started.
