Local taxidermist, Scott Brassfield, competed at the 34th Annual Missouri Taxidermist Competition and Convention held August 1st, 2nd and 3rd at the Country Club Hotel and Spa in Lake Ozark, MO.

The competition is open to any current MTA member and out-of-state competitors who are current members of their home state’s association.

The competition is broken down into three skill categories. The Amateur Division is for a person who receives no money for their taxidermy work.  The Professional Division includes a person who receives money for their taxidermy work.  However, you do not need to be a Professional to compete at this level.  The Masters Division is for the taxidermist who wants to compete at the highest and most technically correct level.

Scott Brassfield, MTA Master taxidermist, entered four pieces this year and came away with the Matuska Competitor’s Award which is given to one Professional and one Master Division attendee.  The competitor must enter four pieces and the winner is determined by combining the highest scoring mounts in each division.

Scott also received the Missouri Trapper’s Association award in the Master’s Division.   This award is chosen by a representative of the Trapper’s Association for best mammal in each skill division.

All awards were presented at a special banquet held on Saturday evening.  In addition to competing, conference attendees have the opportunity to participate in a variety of educational seminars and visit supply vendors.
