About the Instructors

Don Miller
"My name is Don Miller from Fulton NY and have the honor of the teaching at NEAT hands on
workshop. Like many of us, my journey into taxidermy started at a young age which led me to
attend Canadaigua Community College of the Finger Lakes for their taxidermy program to
advance my knowledge. I have been competing since the mid 1980’s. Even though I have won
many awards in that time, which is great, we all compete to gain knowledge and hopefully win.
For me, the real prize is gaining and sharing ideas and techniques with my peers. I also served
as a director and vice president of our association for eight years. I am looking forward to see

Jerry St.Pierre
"My name is Jerry St.Pierre from Vestal NY. I’ve been on the board of the United Taxidermists of New
York for the past 12 years. Along with Don Miller we will be conducting a coyote shoulder mounting
seminar with the NEAT. My Taxidermy career started almost 30 years ago. I mounted a quail. It took two
days and the legs were on backwards but I was hooked. Soon after that I began competing at State and
then National levels. I’ve won many awards over that period but the real prize was the knowledge and
guidance shared with me by many fellow taxidermists. My passion is mounting small mammals and in
March I hope to share what I’ve learned over these years."

Our 2022 March workshop  with instructors Don Miller and Jerry St.Pierre was a great success!
