I’m opening up taxidermy studio and was looking for a school with a taxidermist who had the experience and the knowledge I needed to be successful. I attended Custom School of Taxidermy in Danielsville, Georgia. Tom King the instructor was awesome. His years of experience and knowledge in the field of taxidermy were much more than I ever expected. His one on one training is the best. He showed me the tools I needed and the techniques he used and he answered all my questions about the different methods of mounting up beautiful whitetail deer, Tanning with step by step instructions that you get at the end of the course.
I also took his fish mounting class and had a great time with Tom. His exceptional talent and knowledge he shares would take me years to learn. After taking his course I’m opening my business ready to go. Not only is Tom a good teacher but he and his wife Dianne are wonderful, Their Hospitality is the best, they treated me as family and I consider them awesome friends for a life time. Thanks again for everything. I’m hoping to return for classes this fall. May God’s richest be yours. Harlan Altman

If I could give Tom King more than 5 stars I would. He is a very talented and highly qualified taxidermy instructor who not only imparts knowledge, but also promotes a genuine understanding of the principles and techniques of taxidermy. Tom's hands on approach to learning begins on day one and continues throughout the course of his training. In addition to teaching the necessary skill sets, Tom also introduces the student to actual, real life situations involving repairs to mistakes and improper field care by the customer. This approach prepares the new taxidermist for real world situations and how to ensure customer satisfaction. In addition to receiving Tom's course certification at the completion of the course, I also received a new friendship which will continue long after the completion of his instruction. Well done Tom and thanks for everything!! Paul Snapp

Well where do I start? Tom is one of the best instructors/teachers I have ever met. I took his deer course back in September 2016 and I am now running my own full time taxidermy shop. Tom teaches everything you need to know and he's always a phone call away. I really enjoyed my time at Tom's place and he made me feel very welcomed while I was there for the weeks of class. We learned a lot, talked a lot and boy did we eat and cook a lot. Will return for future classes. Justin Coatney
