    One of our great Donors from last year Matt Smith of Hurst, Texas has agreed to donate a class to the UTA once again. This time Matt has givin us a class for THREE DAYS. The lucky bidder will get to mount a finished waterfowl mount with a water habitat.
    Also the winning bidder will recieve a set of Matt's videos. This auction will not include transportation, or room and board. The auction will run from now till January 8th. at midnight pst All bids must be placed on the industry section of the Taxinet Forums. I will start this auction for $500 This will be one of the best opportunities for aspiring competitors.

    Tony - I want to thank You and the UTA for giving me another opportunity to support the United Taxidermists Association this Year. I want to make this auction fun so First off→

    *EVERYONE that Bids In support of this UTA Auction will receive one random prize in the mail. I will send out painted Wood Duck Heads, Bodies, mini apoxy sculpt kits, eyes...even my Wood Duck Secrets DVD set from www.BlueRibbonBirdsDvd.com to one of the bidders.

    Second - The Winning Bidder will be the first person ever to mount a Hooded Merganser with me. If you want to see my Hooded Merganser techniques first hand - you'll want to bid on this 3 day action-packed class : )

    We will do it up right and build a beautiful habitat in a Walnut Base from our friends at WalnutHollow.com with a cast bait fish, rock mix, habitat and 2 part water from Taxidermy.Net's sponsor McKenzie Taxidermy Supply Ltd.

    This will be a great New Years present for someone.
     
  11. I spent a few days with Matt earlier this year, I learned a lot about birds, also Matt will take unexpected detours at night on dark curvy roads. But back to the birds, it might be the best money you ever spend on learning taxidermy.
