Anyone know of anything in Ontario?

I contacted OFAH and they couldn't direct me to a known source. From the research I've done on Taxidermy, most courses are offered through the states.

Lino is very good for sure. He charges about $2800 for his instruction plus accommodations and travel. I priced it out and it would cost almost $5000 to travel from Ontario to study under Lino for a week or two. I think he covers it in one week but I cannot remember now.

The best thing to do is to find a local taxidermist (or at least someone closer to where you are located) and ask if they would take you on and what they might charge. I have even volunteered at a couple over the years to gain some experience.

Good luck and enjoy. :D

You will not find many taxidermist's willing to share to up to date methods and knowledge that Lino provides to each student. I must say you pay for what you get and his service is absolutely worth every penny! Best of luck in your search but i would keep him in mind.
