Second Nature School of Taxidermy

At Second Nature School of Taxidermy we constantly strive to improve our methods of instructions. By providing hands-on taxidermy instruction, along with our business and marketing course, we will provide you with the knowledge you need to start and operate your own successful taxidermy studio.

Attending a good taxidermy school will give you a lot more credibility than someone who is self-taught. It shows in the quality of your finished work. It also shows your clientele that you have taken your profession seriously, and have invested in your own time and money into qualifying yourself to do the best job possible on their trophy.

We offer several 2 week courses, each 80 hours long. Subjects covered in the 2 week courses include cape prep, measuring, correct antler placement, form prep, finishing techniques, taxidermy vendors, ordering supplies, base construction, marketing, and so much more that we can’t list here!

Classes fill up fast and are booked on a first come first served bases. Reserve your spot early!
