    Swap Meet Montana Convention

    Friday night March 6th those participating in the show can bring your mannikins, hides, skins capes, horns ,antlers or anything else to buy, sell , trade or give away. This should be a blast and a chance to get rid of the stuff you're never going to use and pick up some stuff that may be of use to you.

    Montana Show

    Kudos to the MTA for a great show this weekend. Excellent competitors, excellent publicity and outstanding participation by everyone - including a very appreciative public who are invited and very much enjoy viewing the many excellent works of art done by all the competitors. The seminars were well attended, the topics current including a 6 hour class by Ken Walker on carving/sculpting a lynx (from scratch) Amazing work. The MTA was also supported with a full room of vendors from various disciplines including lost wax sculptors, original art works, tanners, cutlery vendors, woodworkers, taxidermy suppliers and many more. A great weekend - even in the snow. It was very much evident that Dale Manning, the MTA Board of Directors and the membership all worked hard to make the show what it was. Great Job

  17. Re: Montana Show

    Thank you all for your kind words. The MTA has strived to be the best show in the northwest and offer the best educational experience to it's members as it can. The show was a great success only to be attributed to all who helped put it on from the board members, the artists, the suppliers, the vendors and of course all the taxidermists that participated. Look for the 2010 show in Helena, Mt. to be even better! Thanks to all, Dale
