Hello, this is C.J. Fegan and I am from Edgewater, Maryland. I work at Fegan’s Taxidermy, a father-son business (think American Chopper). My Father, Charlie, has been a great teacher and mentor. He was a waterman on the bay for 17 years before opening Fegan’s Taxidermy in 1979. I have been with him full-time for nearly 10 years now, but I just began competing 2 years ago. I graduated from Salisbury University in 2007 with a Bachelor’s degree in marketing, but I wasn’t cutout for a career that doesn’t allow facial hair . Taxidermy gives you that feeling of productivity at the end of the day that drives me to work harder (except fleshing days). In October of 2010 I married my high school sweetheart Jennifer. She understands and appreciates the demands of my chosen career path, and I wouldn’t be the man I am without her love and support. In my free time I enjoy boating on Chesapeake Bay, drinking a cold beer around a bonfire, NASCAR races, and I am an avid bow hunter.

I would truly like to thank the PTA and all of its board members for their hard work. Your show is awesome, the people are super friendly, and the location rocks.
