Hey,
I'm 14 years old and in a little while I'm gonna be entering the big world. I'm looking into taxidermy. I have a school project coming up soon and i have to be an apprentice for someone. I was hopeing that i could get some advice on who to job shadow. I only live in Moberly so it kinda needs to be within 20 or 30 miles.
Thanks,
buckbuster14

here is his website address with all the info you might need....

He said it would be ok to call him at home too if you needed to. He is listed in the book....

Good luck bud......:cheers::cheers:

Contact John McGee @ 660-332-4948. He's the president of the Missouri Taxidermists Association. I'm sure he'd help you find several good mentors in your area. I know he's taken in several people who were interested in mounting fish. Good luck.
