I went to my second taxidermy competition of the year this week end. I entered 3 pieces for judging which included the habitat that I created for this piece, a reproduction cotton mouth snake and a drake wood duck. I recieved first place ribbons for all 3 pieces! If that wasn’t great enough, I also to my suprise, recieved the Best of Category Award in the Professional Waterfowl Division for my wood duck! I could not believe it when they called my name for that award during the awards banquet. These awards haven’t made me complacent with the quality of my work, but have lit a fire in me to improve my skills and the quality of my mounts for competitions and my clients. Pictures of my competiton piece will be posted shortly, so check back often!
