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 way through our website.
