    I just had a customer that brought me a large mouth bass (which was frozen).He said he didn't want the fish in that " POSE" can you change that ::) had a friend that thought you just took a deer(meat and all) ,shot it with some kind of preservative and put it on a board.Also had another customer that thought you used the "ANTLERS" off HIS deer and ordered the rest(pre-made) .That right there is some of the craziest mess I've heard.I'm starting to think that "CUSTOMERS" don't even know what goes into TAXIDERMY ::)

    If they knew what went into it they would try to do it themselves. There's idiots in any service industry. For 25 years I thought eggs came from the grocery store, I just could not comprehend a chicken could squeeze that thing out of it's ass with out breaking it ::)

    I have had people ask me countless times, do you take everything out? Or are the bones still in there.
    The majority of them have no idea what really goes into taxidermy.

    Does the hair growing solution you rub on the mannakin come in different colors or do paint the hair after it grows??? ..... After all those years to most people it's all still a mystery.

    or "think" they know. The ones that really know, appreciate it some much more. The ones that think they know, are a royal PITA.

    You guys are real tough on your customers.....I would say that most of you probably would have as much knowledge about what most of your customers do for a living as they do about what you do. The one thing I have learned after 40 years of it is don't bite the hand that feeds you! ;D

    That's why you're a studmuffin because you are absolutely right studmuffin! :) Customers that know what's up sure keep you on your game. They're the ones that keep you challenged!
