Thanks to everyone who extended their warm Missouri hospitality this past weekend at Lake of the Ozark’s for the 2015 Missouri Taxidermy Show and Competition. It was an honor to be asked to judge the fish and reptile division and hope I was helpful with my critiques and didn’t ruffle too many feathers! This year’s show featured a lot of really great mounts in all categories. The recipient of the Matuska Competitors’ Award went to Cindy Cunningham in the Masters Division and Coryell Koch in the Professional Division. Congratulations to you both for a job well done!! One of Coryell’s entries was a beautiful life-size mule deer on which he used a Competitors’ Choice Change-Out Mule Deer Head along with the new High Definition Mule Deer Earliners by Brian Olson. A very good choice Coryell, and nice job!! We would also like to recognize Mark Huser for his nicely-done first place whitetail sneak. Mark’s choice of forms was Competitors’ Choice for his winning entry. Great job, Mark, and welcome back to the family prodigal son!
