Wildlife Leadership Academy

In summer of 2017, I had the privilege to attend the Wildlife Leadership Academy. This academy focuses on leadership skills and prepares youth to become conservation ambassadors. This week-long field school specialized in white-tailed deer and how they interact with their environment.

Sharpening knives

We’ve all been there. Finally get the shot, the animal is down, and it’s time to get to the real work. You make the cut and sigh because your knife just isn’t as sharp as you remembered.

Taxidermy Tips

• Every hunter and fisher has seen work that he or she likes. Talk to your friends to find out who did their mounts, visit their shops and look at some of their work first hand. Find out how the taxidermist prefers to receive the animal you’re having mounted.
