In two weeks I'll be leaving an industry of which I've spent the last 25 years to pursue taxidermy full time. I started dabbling with taxidermy in '95 and decided to make a side gig of it about 8 years ago. In that time, it has grown well beyond just a side gig and into a full blown business. Many thanks to folks like Buckfever, RonB, George, JoeyM, Jim Tucker, Tanglewood and numerous others. Most of you I have never even personally messaged but I've absorbed just about everything on this site you guys and many others have written, both pros and cons, about making your living with taxidermy. It is all greatly appreciated! You all have been a great motivator! Thanks for helping change the direction of my life!
