Take a look and start watching Taxidermy.net. Good educational website, if you keep a good head on your shoulders and don't take the bad advice. And I can speak from experience that the ones that have been in Taxidermy for awhile will be more than willing to help out the "newbies". I have had one that didnt live close, that had plans on coming to my area and gave me a few animals to practice on. Some are on the website to make money but some are out to help also. Wish I had some extra stuff to help you out. Good luck to you.
