    Looks good hate you had to wait so long I usually figure a year and couple months but that’s not a problem if they look great

    For the most part I will give them as much time as they need and then some. In this case I was told 8 months. I paid in full upfront and told the guy I wouldn't even call him for a year. And I didn't. After a year I started to make inquiries and that's when the excuses and outright lies started. On three different occasions he told me the bird had been started and was close to completion, and it turned out he hadn't even begun. It wasn't until I started to talk about small claims court that he finally got on the ball and did the job.

    I'm a pretty understanding guy, if a person needs some extra time I'm ok with that. But to be lied to repeatedly is unacceptable. It's a shame because I like his work and would have brought him more, but not now.

    That sucks, man... Looks like he does good work, from the pics. That is my next mount. It's in the freezer, waiting to be dropped off with the taxi. I'll be doing a standing one as well, that will sit beside my recliner on a shelf.

    Understand that my taxidermist says 10 months but if it takes over a year I have no problem with that plus I know my guy won’t screw me he is good at what he does and his price is average you pay for what you get
