Re: Little Help!!
I went to the Pennsylvania Institute of Taxidermy in Ebensburg. You will hear opinions that range all over the board about schools. My personal opinion is that it was well worth the money. I've heard that the classes were really big in the past. When I was there, there was never more than I think 12 students. From what I hear, some things have changed since I was there, about three years ago. Derrick is still there instructing, and he is one of the best instructors I've ever had at any school. I'm not sure if Dan is still teaching the business course, but that section alone was worth the money for me.
On a side note, even the best school will not automatically turn you into a great taxidermist, and you will get out of it what you put into it. If you decide to go, pay attention and ask questions if you have them. Having the instructor there in person is what I feel makes the schools so much better than videos. I was also able to understand and learn more from the videos after going to school.
