    I have not done my own taxi but I'm hoping to learn from my current taxi. He is very willing to teach.

    How about you? Pics?

    Taxi

    Was in the Army for 9 years. Was medically retired and I used the GI bill to go to Taxidermy School. Its now my passion. The bass just went to the Colorado State Championships and got a 2nd in Professional Division.

    Not a great picture, but here they are. That forked horn was my first buck. I made both the mount boards.... It is fun going through the whole process. I would love to learn how to taxi some day
