WI State Taxidermist Competition

Taxidermists from around the state compete in different categories to be state champion. Feb 27-Mar 1, 2020 in Steven's Point, WI.


A fall competition and member meeting. August 9th to August 11th, 2019. in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.


Hey Fellow Members,

Another rendezvous is in the books. What a great time in Door County! Such a beautiful side of the state.

Special thanks to Mike and Lori Orthober for hosting, organizing the lunches, and of course the traditional Fish boils. They surely will be missed. Getting together with friends and shooting sporting clays is something I don't do much of, but I have to say I have improved. Who knows maybe one day I'll take up a sport of shooting birds that don't have beards.

Another special thanks to our members that gave seminars and for the members that competed. After all that's what we do. We come to learn and then we show what we've learned in our work.

As I write this we are about one week away from the Wisconsin black bear opener. I wish everyone a prosperous Taxidermy season and may all your freezers be full.

Remember to book your rooms early at the Holiday Inn in Stevens Point for the State Championships. Watch your insight for the block code for the WTA. Well, that's it for now. I hope you have some idea of what you're going to compete with this year.

Hope to see you all this February. Good luck this fall and remember to introduce someone new to the outdoors.

Watch your bobber,
