    Re: Michigan Show

    As far as viewing the mounts, we can get in with our membership cards even before the main show opens. Our seminar schedule is on the website and starts around 8:00 - 9:00 am.

    Hands on seminars ( Rick Krane, Jan VanHoesen and Josh Guge) are set by the instructors. Still a few spots open. $100 limited to 10 members.

    Michigan Show Pictures.....Thank you MTA & Rick Krane

    Would like to thank the MTA for putting on another great show and Rick Krane for a Super Seminar I had the pleasure of attending. I took SOME pic's so I'll post what I have.
    Starting off with Curtis Cooks whitetail that I lost count of all the awards he took. 4, 5 hundred awards, not sure...lol.
    Curtis and I started in comp the same year and we both achieved our best showing this past show. We were talking about our progression and it seems like yesterday. We both had help along the way with fellow MTA members.
    So, here's Curtis' winning whitetail:
