On April 6, 2017, the United Taxidermists of New York had an all day turkey mounting seminar with world renowned turkey taxidermist Tim Jordan. Twelve people took part in the hands-on seminar and everyone finished their mount by the end of the seminar. The UTNY would like to thank Tim Jordan for providing his expertise, supplies and painted turkey heads. We would also like to thank Tim's son-in-law Randy and Todd Capitano for assisting Tim with the seminar.
Todd Capitano is a UTNY board member and the new
World Champion Turkey Taxidermist as well. These three photos were from the seminar!
