Door County Historical Museum Tour
Presented by Mike Orthober -
"Artist"; I think that the word is too casually thrown around our profession. There are some that are distinguished from most of us. From the background painting to the habitat creation to the fine taxidermy, this show piece that will never be in a show is something to see. The artist responsible — Mike Orthober who will be our host for an hour before the museum opens to the public.

The Live Mounting Event
Presented by Jeff Specht -
Every summer, this thing is a hit. We get several members to mount different things all at once. You can watch the one that you really want to see or wander from one to another and pick up tons of taxidermy tips. Anyone is welcome to come and mount something. Get a customer piece knocked out while we have some fun, any skill level is welcome, maybe you'd like to work with a WTA expert to guide you. Just call Jeff Specht or Ron Grams if you would like to participate. There is a lot of room for some new people to jump into this fun afternoon's activity!
