It's time for a reality check. If you do not know how to do a bobcat, you should not take one in from a customer. You instead, ought to buy a few skins from the for sale section and practice YOUR work before taking in an animal. I have never done any African animals, and I would be damned if I were to take one in without the knowledge and confidence to do one, nor would I wholesale it out. I would call Ken Owens and see if he wanted it. I agree you got the shaft in a sandpaper condom on this wholesale deal, but to attack someone who knows what they are doing when you don't have a clue yourself, is just plain ignorant.  My.02.... Take it for what it's worth.

I disagree with you 110%!  I have never mounted a Hippo but I damn well guarantee you that if somebody called me with one I would pass myself off as the best damn Hippo Taxidermist you've ever seen.  I would take the deposit, get it tanned, take it to my friend Roy or Jets studio, pay them $500 a day and the client would have one damn fine hippo sitting in his home.   I have never mounted a life-size gator (and have no interest in learning) but if somebody called and said they have a 12' gator to mount, I would tell them they have found the best gator Taxidermist in Texas... get the gator, get the cash and have my old buddy Dan Hudzik on the next plane to Texas and my client would have the best looking gator one could have gracing his living room.   I have no idea how to correctly mount a life-size African lion, but I have a client in Africa as I type this hunting one (and he's staying till he gets one) and have sold him on a $6500 mount..... trust me, the guy doing it for me is one of the best :)

To say just because you do not know how to do a mount that you should send it down the road is crazy!  Hell, the owner of one of the most successful Taxidrmy shops in the hill country on NOT EVEN A TAXIDERMIST!  He's a businessman!

You don't have to know how to do everything under the sun to take in work, you just have to know how to get it done correctly.

Eddie knows a lot of Bettys.

Well Betty, I am taking it seriously. I seriously think it's cousin Eddie's fault. I'm not sure why you feel sorry for him. He says he has some pics of really nice cats done by Betty #2, but won't post them. Betty #2 says Bruce did the mounting. I don't really care who did the mounting, that part really doesn't matter. Your cousin Eddie went with the cheapest he could find, and that is exactly what you get when you go down that road. I assume he had no choice but to go cheap. He probably doesn't charge enough to subcontract a good mammal wholesaler. Either way it's cousin Eddie's fault.


i am not Eddies cousin, well at least i don think i am , hold on i will check the family tree...Nope not Eddies cousin, however i think me and the Bobcat may be  related in some strange way coz my mothers aunties brothers second cousin sisters brother uncle seems to have the same surprised expression on his face in the 1903 family Photo....does that clear things up for you cole ?  ::)

Holy shiiiiiiiitttttt I read the whole post and my freaking head is numb.  I'm raising the BS flag on this one.  No way in hell did this happen.  Someone is late for April Fools. 

Man I just don't believe it.  To many coincidences and new posters and like named people, I smell something and it's worse than standing water. 


Michael thanks.  ;D  I think we all need to just go get some pie.  I'll watch this one with the popcorn in hand.

Cole, how in the hell do you get people pissed at you when you make valid points and tell it how it is?  Too damn funny. 

Where's freaking alpha dog?  Remember that weirdo.   :D  I bet he mounted that cat because you know how much dogs hate cats and it shows!  LOL   ;D  I think he used it as a chew toy.

MAN OH MAN,  This post is going to convince some TV producer to make a reality show just about TAXINET.  It proves what George always says.  Most taxidermists are as dumb as a bag of hammers.  This is another good reason for testing or at least someone to go around and execute any body that calls themselves a taxidermist that does bad work.  And I get to name the judges and the executioner.  Anybody that wants to, can call themselves a taxidermist.  And that, boys and girls, is the whole problem, in a nut shell.

Here is a solution....buy these two bobcats, give one to your customer instead of the hacky-cat that you paid for and keep the other one for when you do the same thing again.
