"Why do I compete?
I feel taxidermy competitions are a vital part of improving my skills as a taxidermist. It is our one chance a year to have some of the best Taxidermists in the industry critique our work. This helps to improve our quality of work and your over all satisfaction with your completed mount. Its fun too!"
