Show Info

Our Annual Show is our showcase for our artists' great work. Members can enter their work to be professionally judged for several awards in every category.

Our Work

Our artists create memorable taxidermy mounts and replicas - both professionals and hobbyists. The main showcase for our work is the Annual OAT Competition and Show. The images here are from those shows.
