  20. an air mount .... how dare you : )[/quote]
    LOL!!! I was wondering who would pick up on that! ;)
    Thank you everyone! It was one of the best shows I can remember as far as quality taxidermy goes. I'm proud to say that we have so many talented artists in our state and congrats to all the other winners and competitors.

    To answer your question bucksnort, The woodies won State Champion Bird Group, The Van Dyke Award, Taxidermists Choice Bird, Ducks Unlimited Award, and The 12 Oaks Game Farm Peoples Choice Award. The mallard won State Champion Single Waterfowl, Best Finish Work on a Waterfowl, And The Presidents Challenge,(highest scoring mallard drake). The hoodeds took a second in the Multiple Artist Division. We also have an Avian Challenge which was a rooster pheasant this year, and I was fortunite to win the title on that.

    Thanks everyone, and best of luck at your next show and keep your pics coming! I REALLY enjoy looking at this thread. Also thank you sooooo much to all the sponsors and suppliers that contribute to our shows! We couldn't do it without them!!! Also to all our Judges and everyone else involved!
