The Oregon Association of Taxidermists has been providing taxidermy education for Western States artists since 1983. We strive to increase public awareness of the ever-increasing possibilities created in the imaginations of our experienced members.
Our goal is to promote a high standard in the art and science of taxidermy, encouraging the constructive and positive exchange of ideas and techniques amongst its members and guests to better the individual and the industry as a whole without loosing sight of having fun and treating people with respect and kindness. Creating an environment where anybody can ask anyone questions and feel comfortable doing so. The Oregon Association of Taxidermists is an association where you come to the show a stranger and you drive home knowing that you are now part of the family.
The 2014 Taxidermy Show and Competition was held June 26-28 at the Crook County Fairgrounds in Prineville. Click here for show results. The show was extremely fun with competitors from 5 states (OR, WA, ID, CA, UT). Thank you for the hard work put in by our judges: Gary Brumfield, Tony Finazzo, and Jeff Lumsden. We look forward to seeing everyone next year on the same weekend (June 25 - 27, 2015).
