From the first day I tried my hand at taxidermy, I was hooked for the rest of my life. I was 11 years old and the night before I had read my first lesson, Booklet Number 1, of the correspondence course from the Northwestern School of Taxidermy in Omaha, Nebraska. To be honest, I studied the procedure drawings more than the text. I still remember this first attempt at mounting a bird; I had no idea what I was doing, but I liked it and that made me want more. I was having fun!
