You will mount two birds while you are enrolled. They can be two ducks or two pheasants or one of each. One will be standing and the other flying. Habitat will also be incorporated in both mounts. You will also be taught casting artificial heads, altering forms, injecting feet and much more.

You will mount two deer’s from start to finish. Preparing capes and forms, while learning measurements to insure proper form. You will then finish the deer, once 
time has passed for it to dry.
