Same old story I've heard for years now. Why would anyone pay dues to an organization when there are so many other taxidermy associations that don't have constant accusations and controversy surrounding it?? This has just gotten pathetic. I don't recall one instance of this kind of crap with the UTA. Seems simple to me, the NTA drama is a black eye to our art, bottom line. There needs to be a new place where an accomplished artist can win a national title not tainted by the leadership being surrounded by constant controversy.
