About the KTA

The Kentucky Taxidermy Association is a group of taxidermists dedicated to "upping their game" and to heightening the public's knowledge of taxidermy, and therefore the reputation of the taxidermy industry.  We accomplish this through sharing knowledge with each other, holding regional seminars, keeping up with and voicing our opinions about laws related to taxidermy and hunting, and holding a yearly convention and competition, among other things.

There is always much to be learned...simple tips, new techniques, new products.  Our regional seminars are held in a member's shop and many times are "hands on".  Our convention and competition features highly qualified judges who give valuable critiques of your work, seminars given by these judges, taxidermy and outdoor vendors who offer show discounts with no shipping, public viewing, catered banquets, recognition, friendship and fun.
