Why the NTA floats with accusations I will jump into the water and tread water with a question & then swim to shore......I know of many Taxidermy shops that have burned or been devastated in 2013........when is the last time a claim has been paid from the fundraising efforts of this industry? Another question, if your state does not require a taxidermy license are you still eligible because you are not a 'licensed' taxidermy operation. Furthermore, if you have insurance, are you still eligible, or are you denied because some feel you are covered? What is on paper? Are rules set or made up as a committee goes along? Who has received funds over the last year? And if none have, why not? No bull crap about re-organization......it's a committee. They were not disrupted through the process. When is the LAST TIME a check has been sent out......if applied for, what are the reason for denials. PS-I have big damn shoulders, I hope you make me look like a fool for asking this question & it (the fund) can be rejuvenated......as Steve Favour & myself use to have fun doing with it.......... so when was the last check cut & who was denied? Mitch Webb?
