Thats a shame. People should be more greatful for the opportunity to work with items they otherwise would have little access to, and even more greatful to have an item gifted to them. I am sorry to hear of your unfortunate list of complaints.

heres just a few



it took too long
the ducks bloody
it smells funny so i tossed!!HELLO MORON!THERE SEA DUCKS THERE GONNA STINK!
the duck has a broken wing
the duck has a broken leg


I guess im a glutten for punishment. i should of learned years ago. i guess ill say it for the FINAL TIME.




IM DONE GIFTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




so next year just come on out and book a hunt with me. 250.00 a day plys air fare,rental car,gas,hotel,out of state license and you can shoot your own damn ducks!!!!!!!!then well see if you still bitch about a free duck that only cost you 15.00 for shipping!!


oh and nobody ever held a gun to your head on how i was gonna ship it. if you dont like priority or fed ex ground please feel free to pay 50-80 dollars on express.

Wait.. they complained about abit of blood or broken limbs?

Are they forgetting these things were shot, possibly in midflight?

Obviously when something is shot, it's going to bleed. And if it was shot in midflight, obviously it's going to break something when it falls to the ground. Just deal with it.

I get bloodied ducks with broken limbs all the time, wash the bird and use the tutorial here to fix the broken bones, deal with it and stop complaining.

Sorry you feel this way about gifting ducks, I'm surprised people are complaining about trivial things like blood and broken bones, both that can be easily fixed.

I know the feeling Brian,
People don't realize that gifting is a pain in the ass at times, keeping track of pm's, laying out $$, keeping track of who still owes you $$ for shipping, going to the post office, standing on line, etc....I do it because there are only so many birds I can mount for myself, and use as displays, etc. I would rather a bird get used than end up in the landfill. Also, I try to keep in mind that the stuff we shoot around here that's common may be a once in a lifetime bird for someone else....
That being said, we are taxidermists, for chrissakes! Of course it's bloody/defrosting..it took a few days to get to you...pop it back in the freezer and defrost when you're ready to mount it..sheesh!
Yes, they have broken wings, legs, etc...they were shot! What do you expect? Fix it! This is all part of being a taxidermist. If you can't fix a few simple broken bone issues, hang it up now.....
How about the "did you ship yet" or "when's it getting here?" Believe me, no one gifting birds is running off with your $11-$15! We ship them on a Monday to ensure delivery the same week. [Thereby hopefully avoiding the whole "it stinks and is bloody" issues].

And finally, ALL SEADUCKS, MERGANSERS, and BRANT  S-T-I-N-K! This is due to what they eat..seaweed and fish..The bird is not spoiled....again, if you can't handle smells, a different hobby/profession is in order!
Try to remember that we are gifting time and $$ also....

Brian, I gifted about 25 seaducks to a well known taxidermist in louisiana including a king eider back in 1989, and when he received them I could not belive that he called me bitching. He did it one more time and I went crazy on him and called him every name in the book. Of course after that I was the bad guy for doing that to him. He still talks bad of me to everyone but when he see's me I'm his friend. Phony ass dude and certain people make him out to be way better than he is.I know that he has lost alot of good people in this industry for being such a piece of sheet.

Brian, I also have customers who can't understand why some of there birds are shot up ??????? Unless they wished them out of the sky, they are as bad as these people who are beating you up on your gifts. I would like to be added to your good guy list. Thanks Rich
