With a Bull like that id have hooked up with the best taxidermist in town instead of some part time hay farmer working out of his garage.

Let us know who the guy is.  There are plenty of talented taxidermists in Arizona that can do your elk.

This particular part timer is bad because he took $400 and over a year later hasn't done any work. Besides, no one said anything about part time taxidermists. He was called a part time hay farmer, he could be a full time taxidermist for all we know.

I didn't know he was a farmer at all when he first picked it up.  Friend just said, my buddy does really nice work, which was all I was really worried about.

He finally called me yesterday.  Said he will have it done in a week, and he is going to give me all my money back.  As long as it looks good, I don't want the money back.  It may have taken longer than he said it would, but he still did a job for me.

No, Greg even in my experience I don't think part
timers are bad. I'm sure there are a lot of guys on here
Who don't do it full time and are great.  I will definitely
"Get to know" my taxidermist next time though.

Kerby, I've heard good things about you so the next thing
I do, will be coming to you. Got a Javelina waiting actually!

He sent me this today.  This is the first thing I've ever had done, and it's not the best picture, but I'm excited.
Said it had to dry for a week.

Is it me or does the ear that is visible look funny?

Wow I don't want to be taken like i'm acting like i know a lot, but i do know it should take longer to dry then just a week.  Plus i see a lot that isn't right.  Pic isn't great so its hard to really know.  I would say GET YOUR MONEY BACK!!!!

Oh boy..........yea thats a shame.  Nice Bull.  The pic isnt that great so I may be way off but the ear shape and base is off, lip doesnt look tucked very well, and the pedicles shouldnt be 4 inches  above the base of the skull.  What is he charging you  for this job?

and I apologize.......I dont meanto know everything either but depending on what you are paying for that piece.........you may be getting hosed.

Your ear looks more than funny. It has NO ear butt what so ever. My honest to god advice would be tell him you wanna pick it up today and get your money back like he told you. Tell him he doesn't need to let it dry or even paint it you just want to pick it up and you will return him the eyes and form. Cut all the stitches and pull the cape off if its wet (im guessing there isn't any glue on it), freeze it and take it to someone on here that will do the mount justice. Have them remount it with your bulls cape and if the cape is ruined take your 400 and give it to your taxi and have them get you a new cape. I'm sorry but that thing looks bad even in a cell pic. Save it while you can if you can. There is plenty of guys on here that can do it or send you to someone who is a professional and give you a professional mount. Just my advice

our stuff all dries in a week or less and we're not in an arid place like arizona.don't judge an unfinished head and don't ask other taxidermists to critique it.either you're happy or you're not from a consumers point of view once you receive it.
