    Anyone going? Taking any compitition? I'm taking a bobcat ped. a raccoon ped. a bufflehead and a ringneck.
    My 13 year old daughter mounted a bobcat ped and my 5 year old daughter painted a green frog reproduction.

    I think you have to be a member but you can pay membership and registration at the door. You will be surprised at what you can learn and also save money on some supplies. Ever body is a new member at some time. I have always been treated good although it feel feel awkward until you get to know a few people. I have made some good friends over the years. A good way to learn is to bring a mount you have and enter in competion. But go with the attitude to learn especially if you've never competed or the judge could hurt your feeling's but help you in the long run. I've had my feelings hurt a few times (in comepetition) but used it as a learning tool. Good Luck

    Well I don't know about Hope to see you at our summer show Dale

    Kim you may be missing a great show. I know how it is to have the freezer full and season coming on and it's not fun especially when clients are on you back.
