Chukar Class with Tony Finazzo - Intermediate Birds

September 23rd+24th

Chukars with World Champion Taxidermist Tony Finazzo 
'Best In The World Bird' Award for his Rooster 2015
September 23rd & 24th
9am - 5pm Each Day

Come learn from World Champion Taxidermist Tony Finazzo who won Best in the World Bird in 2015. With over 50 years of industry experience, he has perfected his techniques and can help you achieve a life-like, quality mount --and the knowledge to create your own fowl taxidermy at home. 

These exotic Middle Eastern game birds are known for their unique patterning as well as their unique call [chuck chuck chuck chuck]. These beautiful birds have a bright red eye-rings, beak and legs. Chukar also sport a masked face and have lovely striped feathering along their sides.

We will be starting with a frozen bird so students must have already taken Birds 101 here at Prey or must have prior experience in bird taxidermy, no exceptions. Students will also be taken through skinning, washing, wiring, using a cast foam body, painting techniques, mounting, positioning and grooming their own bird to take home. Because chukars have such characteristic feather patterns, we will spend much time at the end of class learning grooming techniques and developing our eye with reference.

For this two-day intensive workshop, each student will receive 2 Chukars -- one that students will be walked through mounting in class and one that they can do on their own from home. Bodies, cast replacement heads made by Tony, glass eyes, and one rock-base are all included.
