Taxidermy program at the Kootenai National Wildlife Refuge. Learn from Dan Hooper (Hooper Taxidermy of Moyie Springs) how you can help a taxidermist produce the best quality mount from your deer or elk. What the hunter does in the field is vital in the process.

On Friday, August 14 at 7:00 p.m., Mr. Hooper will be at Kootenai National Wildlife Refuge to do a hands-on demonstration of how to cape a deer or elk. His program will be held outdoors, near the Refuge’s Education Barn.

Mr. Hooper will also answer taxidermy questions from the audience. This is a great opportunity to see an animal prepared for mounting as well as a chance to find out more about the art of taxidermy and what you can do to properly care for your mounts and hides.

See you at the Refuge. This program is jointly sponsored by Kootenai National Wildlife Refuge and the Friends of Kootenai National Refuge.
