WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT BREAKTHROUGH MANUALS:
“I learned more reading this book than I learned in a 6 week taxidermy course that cost thousands. They didn’t even touch upon 1/10th of the material in the book.”

“I’d recommend them to the first time novice or a veteran commercial taxidermist–they both will find them worth every penny.”

“I’ve been a taxidermist for 12 years. These manuals have shown me things that will start saving me time and money immediately!”

“A real pleasure–I stayed up half the night reading. You guys have really outdone yourselves this time.”

“I wanted to write and say thanks for providing some great learning materials that have helped me learn more about taxidermy than I thought possible in such a short time.”
