Yup, watched em both along with the snow goose and others when I first started some years ago. Those vidoes and the taxidermy forum proved invaluable! Suggest you sit there with pen and paper and take notes of all the stuff you're going to need to order. They'll cover all that well. But first you'll need to build an addition onto your house for all the stuff you're getting ready to buy!
It's like most things, you'll have to actually "do it" to learn it.
The more you do the better you'll get. Don't expect much for your first couple until you work out the kinks and get in a routine. The most important part is the fleshing. You can do a great job on everything else but if there's fat left on it you be throwing it away down the road.
Buy (or make) a fleshing wheel. I tried making one out of a drill but ended up buying the fleshing wheel from WASCO. I'm glad I did. Doing it with scissors is hard to get it all, and IT WILL SMELL LATER!
Recommend you buy the WASCO reference book as well for painting of the beaks & feet. It's proven extremely valuable to me. I'd also recommend buying an air brush for the painting. Get a lot of pictures for posing references. The internet has an unlimited supply.
