    I had forgotten about this thread and wow things have changed over the last two years. I left the Police Dept after about 15 years and bought a Taxidermy Company. Now I am doing Taxidermy and my outfitting business full time. My ranch has doubled in size since this initial post. I now offer about 23 different species total between high and low fenced hunts as well as rep for several African outfits and one Romanian outfitter.

    Started out as a paperboy at age 9. Been working ever since. From a burger joint(there were no Mcdonalds, Burger Kings etc. in my days, to concrete work.
    Got in the electrical industry after high school and was a journeyman electrician 23 years and part time taxidermist. Retired from electrical in 2000 and jumped into the taxidermy business with both feet. Been a great ride ever since, 30+ years now in taxidermy. Always wanted to be a taxidermist when young and travel to Africa. August will be my 10th hunt in Africa with more to come.
    I live in South Dakota.

    Business owner. Oil, transportation and finance are the 3 currently. However, I think there is a huge hole in online marketing for African hunts. I'd love to figure out how to plug that hole. Just met with my marketing guy today......

    Retired US Navy after 22 years. Retired course developer ... mostly government after 20 years. Pastored a small Presbyterian church for 5 years. Now mostly retired, still serving very part time as a Commissioned Pastor at a large church. Catching up on the hunting and fishing and family time I missed while I was busy serving others.

    Phoneix Phil, very few birds. Been too many tough years on the birds. Lost many acres of CRP, farm fence to fence, tear out shelter belts, you name if for the almighty dollar.
    Good thing for all the African mounts.

    I hope all are having a great summer.

    I actually sell produce for a living, wholesale. Been at it for about 8 years now. Have done sales to other wholesalers, chain stores, health food stores, food coops, etc. I used to tell my coworkers if my more "organic" customers asked what I was doing when I am out hunting, to tell them I am out getting "free range, organic, cage free meat"
