The Oklahoma Taxidermists Association is a non-profit organization
striving to better the art of taxidermy and to further educate our
members.  Membership normally ranges from 100 to 150 members
yearly.  Members meet quarterly for informative seminars, workshops
and competitions.  Each summer the association hosts its annual
convention and competition where taxidermy competitors come from
Oklahoma and surrounding states to compete, learn and enjoy
fellowship.  It is truly one of the best state conventions currently
being held.  Each spring the association offers its members an all-day
workshop with one of the industries leading taxidermists in specific
fields.  The OKTA offers a certification program in 8 different
categories.  Annual membership is $35.00 for an individual and
$40.00 for a family.  Lifetime membership is $400.00.  The members of
the Oklahoma Taxidermists Association welcome you to join our great
association.  Please take time to check out our events and click your
