    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,

    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.
