One of the problems members of the SCI Hrvatska Chapter (Croatia) are facing is the lack of accessible taxidermists to prepare their hunting trophies. Members of the Board of this Chapter contacted the SCI Bavaria Chapter and asked for help. Soon after Ante Biondic from Senj, Croatia, was on his way to Pilsting, Bavaria, to attend a special two-week class on the principles of taxidermy, taught by Bavaria Chapter member and Master Taxidermist Udo Busch. Shown from left to right are Ante Biondic, SCI Hrvatska Chapter; Norbert Ullmann, SCI Regional Representative Europe; President SCI Bavaria Chapter; and Udo Busch, SCI Bavaria Chapter.
