48th National Taxidermists Association Convention in Sioux Falls, SD • July 25–27, 2019

With 240 competition entries (ALL ARE PICTURED), this was by far the biggest show in the past 12 years for the NTA. Sioux Falls, South Dakota, was the location for the 48th annual National Taxidermists Association convention, competition, and trade show. The NTA had been at this facility twice before, in 2005 and 2011. It was a great place to host the 2019 National Taxidermy Championships, and the NTA will be returning to the same facility for the 2020 convention July 23–25. For more information call Dale Manning (president) at (406) 721-1214.

Waterfowl Reference Study: Teal, Part 2

Waterfowl Reference Study: Teal, Part 2

by Larry Blomquist

In Issue #133 I presented reference on North American green-winged teal, Eurasian teal, blue-winged teal, and cinnamon teal. For this issue I will be covering additional species: Baikal teal, Bernier’s teal, Brazilian teal, brown teal, cape teal, chestnut teal, and grey teal. This new series on waterfowl will offer the values of shape and feather patterns, but the emphasis will be on the color of feet and bills. Another important area I want to focus on for taxidermists is identification of species. Taxidermists are usually one of the first to be contacted when a hunter has something that he is not sure of what he has. In pulling together this collection of photos, I found some that were also intriguing for attitudes and in flight poses so I had to throw some of those into the mix.

Painting a Longbill Spearfish

Painting a Longbill Spearfish

by Mike Kirkhart

 "It is interesting that when they are held up for a photograph, the fish shows off its translucent dorsal fin and brilliant stark colors. I’ve seen them with vertical gold bars on their sides but the photos of them in their bold blue and chrome colors draw me in for painting them as the contrast colors show off their uniqueness. Lots of blue and chrome are part of the prettiest color phase and it is a tough paint job to pull off and do impressively."
