This was my second time with Rick Carter. This time we focused on competition techniques for deer and mounting a bobcat. We also spent a day discussing and making a habitat and altering a form and discussing casting techniques. The week far exceeded my expectations and I'm surprised we were able to fit so much in 7 days. Not only is Rick a great taxidermist, but he is a great teacher who knows how to impart knowledge. Last time I saw a huge improvement in my mounts after visiting Rick and this time I expect the same with what I've learned. Also, both he and Nikkie were very accomodating. Every day Rick picked me up and dropped me off at my hotel and we ate some good food throughout the week as well. If you are stuck and want to take your work up to the next level, I recommend Rick's one-on-one classes. He taylors the class to meet your needs.
