Wall of Shame Calendar


TIP currently has four different "wall of shame" displays, which travel all over Minnesota. These displays can be seen at sports shows, outdoor events, county fairs, the state fair and other locations.



This was the very first wall of shame. It is about 30' feet long and 12' high in the middle. This wall needs to be displayed inside, to protect the mounts from the elements.


Original Wall of Shame






Our first outdoor display can be used outside, no matter what the weather does. The displays are mounted inside a 30' trailer, with doors that lift up on each side to show the mounts.  This display has some of our more unusual mounts like bear, great grey owl, traps, nets and other items. 


  Outdoor Wall Closed     Outdoor Wall Open




The second wall of shame added to our fleet is what we call our mini wall. This is also an indoor wall, but on a much smaller scale. This display holds approximately four to six mounts. This wall is less than 7' feet wide and can be reserved for events.


Mini Wall





Due to the popularity of the first outdoor wall of shame, a second outdoor wall has been added to the fleet. The newest wall is 16 feet long and again has the displays mounted on the inside of the trailer, with doors that open from the outside.

If you would like one of the wall of shames at your next event, please contact the Conservation Officer in your area to make arrangements. You can locate the officer for your area at 


Because TIP is a private non-profit we do not have the funds to staff and move the walls to every event, that may request them. We do have a partnership with the DNR Conservations Officers, to help with moving the walls when and if it fits into their schedule. Reservations can be made, up to one year in advance of your event.
