    I live in Central Kansas and pretty sure a guy could make a decent living doing just bucks here, maybe some Turkeys.
    Where would you go to learn how to do the best damn Whitetail you could do?

    I keep hearing about Troy. Are you doing taxidermy full time or just as a hobby?

    John Griffith. Hands down. He is a national champion who has won best in world, whitetail.
    Look up "Big John" on here...
  10. Most of the schools and instructors listed here are well established and have a great reputation. To say that anywhere else but one is wasting your money is quite a stretch... but I would research each of your options closely and carefully weigh what each can offer you. Set some criteria around your goals, do the research, narrow the scope and then make some phone calls...talk to them and find out what they have to offer.
