A response from Taxidermy Training Unlimited

February 12th, 2011

Taxidermy Training Unlimited responded to my letter very quickly. Either they get very few letters or they felt the urgency of my situation: I could salvage all of the squirrel hides if I acted fast. They’d give the fur off a squirrel’s back to train a budding amateur taxidermist. What follows is a screenshot of their response.

I replied thusly:

Dear Randy and Rosanna,

Some of the squirrels are rotten, yes, but the rest have now been frozen. Thank you for the advice. I would also greatly appreciate you sending me that demo disc. I am trying to decide whether or not to buy the DVD or have a go at skinning and mounting the squirrels by trial and error.

Dear Matt , Freezing the little creatures is the smartest way to go.. No more smell or flies.I had a guinea pig in my freezer for at least 6 months ,I was waiting for the right weather to bury our little pet .Just to think i could have had some-one like you stuff it for me , it would have been quite the conversation piece..
