The 2010 MTA convention and competition is over........... finally. I suppose I honestly didn't give myself enough time to do these critters for competition but I surely learned a lot. I learned that African critters are a new and difficult challenge especially considering that the people who skin them will never have to show their face again. I learned that the hides exhibit much more shrinkage than do our North American game animals. I learned that working with the right clientele makes it all worth while.
