The class of 2019 was announced to the public during the awards banquet at the World Show in May, and the induction ceremony was held in conjunction with the National Taxidermists Association awards banquet in July in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

DIY Hair-On Tanning Using Advanced Tanning Solutions Products.

DIY Hair-On Tanning Using Advanced Tanning Solutions Products.

Written by Dale Knobloch, Founder, and Kim Prinzi Kimbro, Manager

The first and most important step in tanning is to start with a hide or skin that has received proper care. A well cared-for hide will later eliminate bacteria growth and/or hair slippage. Proper salting should be done as soon as possible after the hide has been removed from the animal.

Part 4: Mounting a World-Class  Whitetail Deer Shoulder Mount with 3-Time World Champion Gene Smith

Part 4: Mounting a World-Class Whitetail Deer Shoulder Mount with 3-Time World Champion Gene Smith

WRITTEN AND PHOTOGRAPHED by Larry Blomquist

Gene will tell you that with each competition deer you mount, you will learn something new and these experiences will carry forward into all phases of your taxidermy, including commercial work. Gene stresses the importance of knowing and incorporating accurate anatomy, correct sizing, and proper preparation of the skin and form. When the complete process is planned and done right, the mounting procedure will go together like putting on a perfectly fitting glove. Hide paste is an important part of the mounting process because you must have a strong bond of the skin with the form and earliners to prevent drumming. Gene’s choice of hide paste came by accident one day when he was mounting gameheads and realized he was low on hide paste.
