Good references are essential for taxidermy work that stands out from the rest! As Tom Matuska often says, “The hardest specimen to mount is the specimen that you know the least about.” We have made it our goal to provide our students with reference pictures that provide detailed, up close pictures. We have had live study pens through the years with deer, turkey, fish and ducks and have been able to get up close and personal with these animals to get accurate, beautiful reference pictures. Quality Taxidermy work begins with great references!
