In 1965 Clayton followed his employer Ken Hard to Cold Spring New York, where he was the foreman and hunting guide for Nimrod Valley Gun Club. Clayton chose Cold Spring to finish raising his family. By 1971 he and his wife Mary owned and operated the K-9 Country Club and Taxidermist Studio till 1978. He had a love of nature and the great outdoors, especially gardening.
