Joe Meder _ Iowa Taxidermy and Taxidermy Class Instruction

At Joe Meder's taxidermy school, We well expand on your natural ability to help you reach your full potential whether you are a beginer or an advanced competitor. During the class you will learn our proven world champion techniques used in mounting , coupled with high quality anatomical references, and our philosophy in how to properly use those references. You will have daily contact in our on site research facility with the live deer that are so crucial to producing the "live animal" look in a finished mount. All this is incorporated into five days of intensive hands-on taxidermy instruction, individualized to meet your specific needs. That's why the class size is limited to no more than three at one time. The students that have taken this class have won major competitions in Whitetails and Game Head categories, including national and world titles. You will receive a certificate upon completion of the class.

Everyone strives to get better each year. This one week of instruction will quite possibly teach you more than you could learn on your own over many years of doing taxidermy. Just ask our former students:

What former students are saying?

"I have currently been in business as a taxidermist for 9 years. I attended numerous classes and seminars, but never could accomplish what I needed.  With my research on the internet and through word of mouth it seemed that I always kept going back to Joe Meder's Game Head course.  With Joe's knowledge and the studying of live deer onsite, he helped me to accelerate my work to a whole new level.

There is no doubt that the money that I spent on Joe's course was the best investment in my taxidermy career!  Not only did it give me the tools and knowledge I needed, but it also gave me the confidence to reach my goals and grow in this ever-changing industry."

Ben Mitchell, Blue Ribbon Winner, Louisiana Show.

"By far the best money I've ever spent. I have seasoned taxidermists ask
me how I get such realistic and soft eye color.  I then tell them to take
Joe Meder's Game Head Course."  Brian Reinertson, Blue Ribbon Winner, ITA Show.
