    I’m 12 and want to get into it. I go squirrel hunting with my grandpa and we can easily get some squirrels. Recently I shot my first deer it was a big doe and I had it mounted and it turned out great and I want to be able to do my grandpas and my own deer in the coming years. Any recommendations?

    Someday when I get rich, I want to have a squirrel chess set. Little squirrels for the pawns. Burly squirrels for the knights. Etc. King and Queen squirrels would be the big fatso lumpy ones, the biggest ones. They could also be wearing medieval stuff and have swords and whatever.

    can you really use a heat gun on the skin instead of drying it out with borax?

    For those that don't believe taxidermy has a place in society or is inhumane, you must not understand the benefits properly. Of course there are hunters and taxidermists that go against the law like anything really but the majority do it out a love and connection with nature and wildlife and do so for better reasons than just to mount an animal – the skin is seen as a by-product of whatever the initial purpose was be it food; population control etc. Whilst you'd rather fill your homes with plastic based or man made materials to decorate or clothe yourself in such materials (which I believe has more impact on the environment and animal life) while whining on about on youtube or social media that this isn't humane- remember these people are the ones who are really engaging with different species and learning about the natural world.

    this is wrong… I'd like to see someone get their insides ripped out and turned into a display… this is inhumane

    Is it just me or is the soft-spoken awkward host making this video far more uncomfortable than it needs to be? Not sure if there's a way for city folks to go into a project like this with confidence, but still. Lol.

    After done with the taxidermy are you allowed to keep the left overs?

  15. hfvkhnml

    You killed the squirrel to make this video. Now that's what I call human pieces of shit

    restored some dignity to him? what? shooting him in the face, skin him then shoving him on a stump?, taxidermy is fucking weird

  17. Pinkus Dean
