You Gotta Love it................

I love to see all these so called "World Champions". Take a Blue in masters at the WTC, then maybe the title might be warranted. It's just sad to see the self proclaimed "Best in World" & "World Champion" yahoo's try to capitalize on a title they didn't earn. I guess it's easy to mislead an uneducated public.

I'm not trying to take away from the quality of the work, it looks great. I just hate to see the titles used so loosely.

Looks great

But I think most of the mounts he does look great. I enjoy watching
his auctions end. He's very talented. I wish I was that good with
cats. I see nothing wrong with him using his win to help boost the
price of his mounts. That's what America is all about. If you're good
use it to your advantage. Way to go Wildlife-Artist your mounts are
exceptional.

So is it a world champion mount or not? I don't understand!

Larry Blomquist up and see exactly what a "World Champion" is. I would be willing to wager that a "best in world" for sure or maybe a blue in masters division could justify the title. Surely a blue in professional division at the WTC doesn't. That doesn't mean quite a few people don't become self professed world champions or even best in world title holders with their professional ribbons. I know of one person who got a third in pro division and claims "Third in World" whitetail winner. Kinda like the "Award Winning Taxidermist" title, doesn't say that it was a second place in novice division. But people sure do like putting it on their literature.

Well heck, maybe I won't care what people think either. I'll just go with the flow and rename my taxi business to

"World Champion Taxidermy"

By your standards I became a world champion back in '97. I think I'll just be satisfied with a name I can justify.

I sense a little jealousy here? I don't think anyone could argue the talent that wildlife artist has when it comes to mammals.I have also seen his cat mounts and they do look excellent.I see nothing wrong with his selection of wording to market his mounts as that is business.


You don't understand.

The point Paul is making is simple. If anyone can claim championships, titles and accomplishments, what's the honor in actually going out and attaining one? Wildlife-artist is quite an accomplished artist and cat specialist. His work supports that compliment. But why hasn't he entered his work at the Master's level instead of the pro level when competing at the World Show, then? He'd be much further ahead to simply state that hes a multiple award winner at the world level. In the taxidermist's and taxidermy trade jargon, a world champion is a title reserved for those who took First, Second and Third in World at the Master's level. It's not about jealousy.


He does a super nice bird...

too. He's definitely World Class! Accomplished amongst peers...isn't that what we strive for?
