Professional Division
Life-size Large Mammal Catagory
2-First Place Awards - Mt. Lion & Bear
(2nd & 3rd Highest Scoreing Mounts Respectively)

Competition taxidermy is very exacting and is judged by highly accomplished master taxidermists using high powered flashlights and magnification devices going over each piece with a fine tooth comb. In order to excel, the competitors must be completely familiar with each specimens anatomy and the finest details of inner mouth & eye detail, coloration and convincing replication of those details. The second and equally important consideration is an artistic presentation of the animals, telling a visual story.  A blue ribbon score would be 90-100, 100 being considered as perfect.

These mounts scored as follows: Mt. Lion-96 / Black Bear-95 / Dead deer-87

The following photos were taken at the World Show
