    I am listening. But criticizing my prices and telling me what people can afford down here when he don't know his self. I personally know what people can pay down here because me and my family is in the same boat.I wouldn't pay $3000 dollars to mount a cub.
  2. You are not listening, read this post, especially the red part again. ::)

    If you can't take a little constructive criticism, you are at the wrong place my friend.

    I can take constructive criticism. I am good at what I do I just don't believe in dollaring them for something.
  4. Well I can see that I am waisting my time here. :(

    Good luck with the bear. ;)

    Thanks for the luck. I am done with this post. I just was wondering what product would be the best and the fastest way to tan this hide but I am just wasting my time.

    But it is not what you wanted to hear, thats how this thread ended up where it is.

    I hate to be a SMART A$$ but I am tried of listening to your smart a$$ complaints about how i am charging to less. If you want to pay to have this bear tanned send me the money. PEOPLE HERE CAN NOT I REPEAT CANT AFFORD IT. They could care less if it is BATH TUB TAN as long as it satisfies them they are completely happy with their mount.
  8. You have 2 questions in your original post. I'm gonna answer them for you.

    What is the quickest way to tan this bear in a matter of days? Kwotann, but good luck degreasing.

    Would it hurt the mount later on if it was just Dry preserved? Yes, and besides DP is not a tan, and your customer requested it to be tanned.

    How is that?

    Ask him if he can touch his a$$hole with his peter....when he tells you "yes", say "good, go **** yourself!"

    You would make out 10 times by doing that then DP'ing this bear or breaking even on such a hard job. Look at yourself in the mirror & ask yourself what YOU are worth, not what anybody else "thinks" you or your work are worth. You sound boisterous, do not be that way only on the internet, be that way with those that try to screw you around in life which is exactly what this man is doing!

    Thanks for the advice everyone.
  18. Actually it is your mistake. You quoted the price and didn't even know how to tan it or how much that might cost. I think everyone does that at least once. So now you can call and raise the price ( kind of unprofessional) or just wing it and try to tan it yourself(very unprofessional) also you have a time issue. The only way to do a good job is to enjoy what you are doing ,I think you have prevented yourself from doing that on this one. Live and learn, better luck next time.

    P.S. most of us have learned by making mistakes like the ones you have made.
