​Oklahoma Taxidermists Association


  The Oklahoma Taxidermists Association is a non-profit organization striving to better the art of taxidermy and to further educate our members. 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 to attend! 

  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.  

  The members of the Oklahoma Taxidermists Association welcome you to join our great association.
