A.M.S.A. Sportsmans Show
This past weekend was the A.M.S.A. Sportsman Expo at the Wicomico Youth and Civic Center. This event is held every year in March and usually fills up both arenas at the WYCC. This year was no different. Boats, campers, four wheelers and more were on display. Fishing gear is always big at this event has beach season is just around the cornor as well as boating season. I usually attend about every third year or so as little really changes.
However it is a good time to old friends and make new ones as well. It is also a good time to grab beach permits for Assateague Island.
I am always fascinated with the taxidemy displays. This booth was occupied by "Collins Taxidermy" from Powellville MD. The time and attention to detail is phenomenal. The full mount whitetail deer above certainly looked real and the grey fox with the dove dinner was equally realistic. Mr Collins had many other displays up as well and it is quite evident he has an eye for detail. I don't hunt any longer but if I did and had a need for a trophy mount I would surely condsider Mr. Collins for the work.
