The bad part

This response submitted by Steve D on 4/10/05 at 10:01 AM. ( aaa_taxidermy@yahoo.com )

The bad part is that when it was originally done it was probably considered to be a very good mount. That's the reason we (taxidermists) have such a hard time now because people are still dealing with things like that and the average person doesn't know any better, I mean look at the first line of her description "HERE WE HAVE ONE REALLY BEAUTIFUL PIECE' no education. People that buy mounts like this are people that don't hunt or fish and just want something to liven up the decor of the house or camp. I'm sure someone will buy it hang it up and think it's the most beautiful thing they have ever seen. problem is we would probally all do the same if we didnt know any better.By the way eric your right.. LOL

No taxidermist involved

This is obviously a cast piece that involved no taxidermist in its production. It's no different than the crappy animal statues you can buy at Wal-Mart that take a poor stab at representing the animal.

This is not a fiberglass reproduction that is poorly painted, it is a fish statue that is poorly painted. I think the person who buys it knows it's not very good quality...but it's probably cheap.

Not that your opinion counts, but I guess you are entitled to it. I have been doing taxidermy for 6 years now, this is my first year in my new shop, so I could expand. I never said my work is world class, but I am starting to recieve more and more work, since people are seeing my work. I have people coming from 2 and 300 miles away now, just to bring me thier mounts. Better check your "closet" before you start bashing other people. Looks to me like you are one that would buy that fish, and call it a piece of art. Good Day To You, Eric

a few things you can check , one is i never make fun of others work not even yours but i do pull my pant down and show others what an ass i am and i also make fun of others opinions .

It;s nice your doing well and hope you continue to grow but by putting others down for their work, will come back to bite you.

Ebay is a garage sale nothing more!

BUT, The only person you degrade through incrimination is yourself. BTW, Wilson has paid more than a few dues over the years. I don't think you want to go there bragging about 6 years and customers from )miles. It doesn't mean anything! Talk your walk and let others do the same. No bad intentions meant but...do remember where you came from and where you'd like to go! Best Wishes. Jeff F.
