Manny Chavez and Dwayne Miller of the UTA came to the Arizona Taxidermy Artists Association (ATAA) annual convention in Phoenix, Arizona and put on a 2-day HANDS-ON pheasant seminar. The UTA provided the birds for the seminar. One participant brought a customer's pheasant to mount. Two of the participants had never mounted anything prior to this seminar!
This seminar at a state show is definitely a TREND SETTER! Nothing but positive comments were received from the participants. And Manny and Dwayne were great in their patience in teaching this seminar, showing the participants how to do it, then allowing the
participants to do it. A GREAT learning process.
The UTA plans on adding more hands on seminars to the agenda and would like to hear form you as to what YOU would like the UTA to
put on regarding hands on Seminars. Contact your Regional Director and let them know what you think!
Special Thanks to our friends at the ATAA for making this seminar a success for all!
Thank you Kerby Ross for the Photo Contributions!

The UTA grew from the need for unity and professionalism within the taxidermy industry. In art, unity occurs when all of the elements combine to make a balanced, harmonious, complete whole. The UTA creates that unity, a place for all individuals to come together for the betterment of the industry and those that support it.
It’s no coincidence that the UTA starts with You! Be a part of the most positive new force in taxidermy. Join the United Taxidermist Association today. www.unitedtaxidermyassociation.com
