If you want an excellent way to learn more than you thought possible in a few short days, make a date to attend a taxidermy convention in your area. You'll see examples of innovative, artistic taxidermy work in the competition, learn about the latest techniques in the seminars, and enjoy the fellowship of meeting new friends with similar interests. Attending a convention is the BEST way to see what the world of taxidermy is all about.
