The United Taxidermist Association was pleased to accept the invitation of the Utah Taxidermist Association, host of the Western Regional Taxidermy Competition, in Salt Lake City, Utah. This opportunity to share information about the UTA with the taxidermists in attendance, meet old friends and make new ones was not to be missed. In addition, the UTA is pleased to give the Artisan Award at this show. As of today, with mounts still being received, it looks as if this show will be a total success. Congratulations to the UTA, Utah Taxidermy Association, from the UTA, the United Taxidermist Association!
