    Default Gunsmith in Tok, Slana or Copper Center? Taxidermist?

    Any call for a gunsmith/machinist out in that neck of the woods? Doesn't have to be a big living, I'll have my retirement.

    What about a taxidermist?

    I am not asking for a job, but asking if I hung a shingle if there would be a need?

    Lee Penwell has a shop in the Nabesna country, and while he operates a business, I believe ha also has another job. There used to be a sporting goods store in Glenallen, owned by a good friend of mine, I'm not sure why he folded it up, but I cant imagine it being too busy other than during the summer.

    If you did good work in either areas(gunsmithing or taxidermy work) you would get some business but I think it would be sporadic at best. Not enough of a population base or people out there that desire taxidermy work or custom guns to give you a full time job and or reliable income.
