Taxidermists Display Work

Posted: Updated:

People from around the country gathered at the Ramada Inn in Bismarck this weekend to display their work from an unusual hobby. 

Wolves, bears, deer and pheasants were just a few of the animals on display for the 30th annual taxidermy art show. Around 50 taxidermists brought their work to be judged by experts and peers. Organizers say although they are only competing for ribbons, what they learn is rewarding.

"Some of the top taxidermists in the world come in and judge our pieces, and we can get critiques by those guys and learn how we can improve and visit with different taxidermists. It's a pretty good thing, its a way to learn and show off some of our work," says N.D. Taxidermist Association president Ron Stoppleworth. 

The show was open to the public March 8 and 9.
