    OHIO TAXIDERMY CHAMPIONSHIPS APRIL 5,6, & 7 WEBSITE UPDATED!!

    The OTA website has been updated and there is a lot of new info on there. Go check it out at www.ohiotaxidermists.com

    However...Brad Eppley has had to bow out of the WT Deer judging . Rick Dunlap of WV will now be judging WT DEER. We want to thank Rick for accepting the offer on short notice. Since Rick will be judging WT deer he will not have time for a seminar sooo...World Champion Vincent Fleming of NC will be doing one instead. Many thanks to him. Jim Giigi's seminar has also been moved to Friday. Sorry for any inconvenience.

    BRAND NEW venue and location. Still only a MEASLEY $55!!

    Re: OHIO TAXIDERMY CHAMPIONSHIPS APRIL 5,6, & 7 JUDGE AND SCHEDULE CHANGE!!

    I'm sorry to hear that Brad won't be able to judge this year. But I am sure Rick will do a great job judging. We were going to ask Rick to judge next year anyways, so we just get him a year ahead of time.
    And I want to thank Rick also. He is always there to help.
    Plus we get Vince to give a seminar ! I am sure that will be one that everybody will not want to miss !!
    Can't wait for the show !!
