    The sad part of this industry is there are so many people that are no longer young. We loose wonderful talented people every year. A many of us are at that age that a slip on a wet spot in the shop could have serious consequences. The wealth of knowledge that taxidermists have on here is immense. Every time we loose someone like him we loose a resource that is not replaceable.

  8. I can't believe it's been 8 years. He was always willing to help out a newbie like myself. RIP Mr. Coyote.

    Thanks Bill, just was in the archives reading some of his posts the other day. Great guy, kind soul.

    I think we all could follow suit with how we post things. Myself included.
