Issue 63, Spring 2001


Our cover and Gallery features the art of Wisconsin taxidermist Mike Orthober. This stringer-mount of smallmouth bass exemplifies the taxidermy produced from his studio. Mike will conduct a seminar and judge at the 2001 World taxidermy Championships®. His brother, matt, a professional photographer, also shows his talents by providing beautiful photos of Mike's work.
