These tutorials, or group of pictures are to HELP people, If your serious about actually making good taxidermy, and you say you want to be a true taxidermist.
Dont.
Cut.
Corners.
it will bite you in the ass sooner or later, the trade is expensive yes, alot of money go into it and yes its best to look for the best deal but not be a cheapskate with cheap/ home made materials.

Depending on what it is and if i want to keep it, I put it off to the side to decompose and let the flies have at it until i can get it.

but for somethings that i get alot like foxes and coyotes, i put back to the side to the road away from traffic, or off in the wilderness to give back to the animals to have food.

Ermahgerd, this is super helpful. I'm thinking about starting up taxidermy as a hobby when I move out (my mom wouldn't like me skinning animals and such in the backyard :giggle:), and these will be certainly helpful!

Really nice! I don't do traditional taxidermy, but it's good to have these to refer to when people ask me for tips on things I've never done :)
