getting a response to a shipping question, you should try a different supply company. Are you calling directly or requesting info on-line? On line responses are generally automated, until someone can get to them. Is it you I suggested to try Matuska Supply, Competitor's Choice forms? If not...give them a can order on-line and pay more for expedited shipping.

How should we know?

Seriously,,, we couldn't tell you because we don't know where you live, or even you're address. I think that they are closed for the week end. If you call them tomorrow and order what you want and tell them to ship it next day air, you will have it on Tuesday.

i have only tried McKenzie and WASCO, and McKenzie is VERY fast. WASCO is much slower compared to McKenzie, say in my case 3 days for McKenzie vs. 7 or more for WASCO. i'd be curious to hear what others have to say.

4 days

Usually for supplies OTHER than forms the shipping takes 2-5 business days. Forms can be a different story. The last time I ordered forms from them I was told they were running 14-16 days out. I've tried Matuska, and been very happy with their service, only problem I had with their form was the fit, the face was too narrow, and the brisket was too tight.I'm not sure if it was the form or the deer, but the neck fit good and the eye to nose was good. Might try the Meder forms. Oh yeah, I'm in SW IA. if that helps.

Van Dykes took about 4 to 6 days and i'm in newyork but they have a really good selection of forms if you have their catalog. But call them direct you'll a faster and more direct response i have had really good dealings with Van Dykes. Hey sometimes its worth the wait.
Taxidermy is a fairly slow process anyway compared to some other quality things we pay for right. Its really up to what your willing
to wait for. Hope i helped.

Deer forms

It depends where your deer was harvested. McKenzie makes a GREAT Northeast WT form, but the Van Dykes don't seem to fit properly for that deer. Remember, location, location.

I ordered a straight semi sneak mule deer on March 9 and am still waiting on April 1 the good news is my credit card showed money with drawn. I called last week twice told I need the form rush order. Bottom line I told them I'd order from McKenzie Jonas or Research next time. The lady at customer service just said I bet they dont ship near the number of forms we do.

In Michigan

it takes about a week from Van Dykes. The last form I ordered from them was back ordered, so I called and cancelled the order. Went with McKenzie, which takes 3 business days, unless it's an item coming for John Rinehart. Those orders take only two.
Anytime I've ordered anything from Matuska, it takes 3 business days as well.
