World Taxidermy Championships Comes to Peoria

The World Taxidermy & Fish Carving Championships comes to Peoria.

"For years, taxidermy has been recognized as a deer head haning in a barber shop or restaurant," said Larry Blomquist, president of the World Taxidermy Championships. "And, it's really about something much more of an art form."

Professional taxidermists get to show off their artwork at the Peoria Civic Center.

The World Show has different competitions throughout the week.

From carving to sculpting, taxidermists get to sharpen their skill set. 

Competitors have the opportunity to win a cash prize up to $17,000.
