    3bears I'm pretty sure that the MN show is the same weekend as ours, that's what they said last year when I attended that show...

    It is unfortunate our show is the same date as 3 of our neighbors... we truly hope all shows that weekend are successful.

    Update on the seminar topics.

    Daniel Meng’s seminar will be focusing on bobcats. Learn cat anatomy from a world champion.

    Todd Kranau’s seminar with be an interactive event on maintaining a successful taxidermy business. There will be packets to fill out that account for ALL the numbers. Not just form, tanning, eyes, etc. He will go in depth how to account for depreciation of assets, cost of living, taxes. This will really help people understand everything that goes into running a business or running yourself into the ground. Come with questions for Todd, he is eager to help.

    If you have never come to the Iowa show, we have a "first timer" special rate to register. $20 in advance and $25 at the door. 20 bucks for these 7 seminars and vendor room discounts is beyond a steal! Call me with any ?s 319-331-7126
