Disclaimer:

Individuals learn and work at varying speeds, so no promises can be made on the number of projects a student will complete. Due to the time constraints, students who choose to mount large mammals, game heads and birds may be required to reduce the number of projects in other categories. If another instructor is needed due to the size and complexity of the project, there will be an added expense.
