VERY NEW to taxidermy
I am very new to taxidermy, I have looked up MANY videos on the Internet for different ways to skin/tan animals.Unfortunately ALL of those videos show how to skin the body, but they chop the head off of the animal (very small game ie squirrels). I am trying to get some help on how to skin and tan the WHOLE animal, not everything but the head. Any help would be appreciated!
Taxidermy.net is your friend!!!

Whether your going to learn how to do taxidermy from Videos or go to someone that offers Classes.
If you do not understand atleast how the proccess works I can Guarantee you are going to have problems from the start.
There are Several Different methods for tanning a skin & ALL have there places . Some work well for a flat skin but not a cape that will be mounted. Some will NOT work for mounting skins .
Paste tans & Dry perserve just plain SUCK.
Dont get suckered into using it here in Alaska or you will not like the outcome.
