i just got word that long time Texas taxidermist Billy Ray Hall died last week of pancreatic cancer in Bowie Texas. Billy was well known in the Austin area. he was a past board member of the TTA. a viet-nam vet, he was wounded in action and fought many of the demons that came from that era that he could never conquer. a good friend and partner, Billy will long be remembered as a cantaqeres old goat, but an outstanding taxidermist. he will be missed SEMPER FI Billy.
