Matt Diemer and Tom Stombaugh will be instructing a hands on coyote shoulder mounting class at our upcoming show on Friday April 8th from 10am - 4pm. The class will be limited to 10 participants. Everyone in the class will mount their own piece (supplied by the MTA) that they will take home with them. Participants will be responsible to bring their own tools. The cost of the class is $200. Now is the time to get signed up. Elaine Unrath can invoice you and send out contracts for interested parties. I (Travis Walle) can do my best to answer any questions in regards to this seminar. Both Matt and Tom are very talented and will surely raise your game!

As of 2-12-22 There are spots available for this seminar.
