Good online taxidermy classes include instruction on mounting large gamehead, small mammals, raccoons, coyotes, waterfowl and turkeys. Hobbyists and students can also take taxidermy classes focused on elk, bobcats, antelope, ducks, fish, deer and mule deer.
A caping, fleshing tanning taxidermy class taken online also teaches the basics of mounting. Online taxidermy classes are delivered to the student via DVDs, online video tutorials or live, online classes with an instructor in real time. Online classes are available through private hobbyists, the American Institute of Taxidermy, and educational institutions such as the Missouri Taxidermy Institute or the Northeast Michigan School of Wildlife Art.
