Annual hunting show coming to Wausau


An annual hunting show is coming to Wausau for the very first time.  

Hundreds of taxidermists gathered at the Patriot Center Thursday to set up for the Wisconsin Deer Classic that kicks off Friday afternoon.

Organizers say it gives them a chance to bring their finest work and present it in front of judges.

The event has been held in Green Bay for 20 years.

But organizers decided to bring the competition to Wausau.

You can't see it anywhere else in the state, this is the only state competition where it's not just judged on the antlers this is artistic quality," said Mark Gonnering, President of the Wisconsin Taxidermist Association.

The event runs through Saturday.
