To whom it may concern,

My name is Kody Kubala and I am the owner and operator of Three Sixteen Wildlife Studio located in Kerrville, TX. In 2010, I took a six-week taxidermy course given by Texas Hill Country School of Taxidermy owned and operated by Bryan Waligura. I was successful in the course and have been operating my taxidermy shop for almost 8 years after completing his course. I recommend that Bryan is able to reopen his school so that other will be able to learn how to become a taxidermist under this amazing teacher. If you have any questions, please feel free to call me on my cell phone at 979-541-9669.

I attended taxidermy school with Bryan Waligura in 2012. I chose to enroll in his taxidermy course because of the close location and the small class numbers. The small class size allowed me to learn more skills and have more instruction time.

I thoroughly enjoyed learning the art of taxidermy under Bryan Waligua. We learned how to mount small mammals, birds and larger mammals. Bryan worked 1 on 1 with us and critiqued our work until it was flawless. He also shared with us business tips on how to make sure to make money when owning our own business. He showed us where and how to order supplies that we would need for a taxidermy business. Bryan also helped us get in touch with local tanneries and other businesses ant we would need to run a successful taxidermy business.

Bryan Waligura and the Texas Hill Country School of Taxidermy played an integral role in my taxidermy career. Bryan taught me the basics of taxidermy, business management and customer relations. He made sure that I had one on one training and insisted on hard work. After completing his course in 2009, I founded Stevens Taxidermy and have grown my business to the 5th. largest taxidermy studio in the State of Texas. We continue to grow each year and feel like I owe Bryan a huge thanks for always being passionate about the trade of taxidermy, and passing it on to me. I wish him the best of luck in the future and hope that many more aspiring taxidermist can learn under his tutelage.
