Come Experience

We are once again planning a "hands on" Whitetail Seminar for the Wisconsin Taxidermists Association Championships in February 2018. This will be a four hour seminar scheduled for Friday afternoon, February 23rd.

So, here’s the deal: We have three famous whitetail guys for instructors, Mike Yeska, Mark Gonnering and Clint Rickey. Each instructor will have three seminar participants, for a total of nine openings for people that want to learn "hands on". The WTA, with the help of some generous donations from our suppliers, will provide nine participants with a whitetail form, eyes, earliners and clay. Each participant will set eyes and ears on their form with guidance from the instructors. At the end of the seminar, the work will be theirs to take home for future reference. All that is needed is your own mounting stand. The cost of to be a "hands on" participant, will be $60.

And then a couple were a little tougher to draw a connection, just play along...#7 - (chemistry) any process of combination (especially in solution) that depends on weak chemical bonding - hmmm, I don't know about you, but, that sounds like some kind of reference to having some drinks if you like to read between the lines like I do. And you know that one can imbibe knowledge as well; see how slick that was? The having some drinks thing also confirms the mention of memory, back in #6, because if memory serves,
