Wow, and I thought my taxi's estimate of 3-4 months was quick. Does he tan his own hides?

No he aint got a drive through window I dont know if he tans his own hides or not I think why I got it back so quick was that the head I brought up to him was the 2nd one for him since the start of season, thats my thinking though.

I'm guessing he dry-preserves instead of tanning.

Yeah I though 3-5 months was fast
