Congratulations Graduates!


In May of 2017, 6 students graduated from the Northwest Iowa School of Taxidermy.These students were instructed in several taxidermy techniques including:gameheads, fish, birds, mammals, habitats and much, much more! The wide variety of work produced by these individuals showed creativity, accuracy, and neatness and were some of the best pieces you could ask for from beginning taxidermists. Many impressive works of art returned home with them to fill their showrooms. These graduates will soon learn the rewards of working at a job they love! We hope to see you at your state taxidermy association competitions and conventions!

From all of us at the Northwest Iowa School of Taxidermy, we say congratulations and wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors!
