    So this time of year normally prompts a lot of negative posts - price checkers, no deposits, bad capes, etc. I'd like to change things up and pose this question: What's the best idea you've ever had? What did you do that suprised the heck out of you when it worked?

    I got my wife a lamp kit and some Nilgia feet to see if she would like to do a taxidermy project. She has nerve damage in her right arm and can't work so I've been trying to find her something she could be proud of to keep her spirits up. I'm happy to say she loved it. Now she wants to do a bunch and open an on-line store to sell them and other novelties.
    I was pleasantly surprised and I have to say proud.

    My best ideas; raise prices, get deposits, and make sure the capes are good.

    I'm with you Andy, the days are getting longer and longer. The time with my kids is getting less and less. Time is flying buy. I am taking the day off Saturday and taking my little girl out to the blind for her first deer hunt. My dad always said life was short, what did he know!(LOL)

    Johnc I have an opion on that near yours. Divorce is messed up I lost my truck house place to sleep I payed all the fees for mine her lawer I did nothing wrong besides leaving her worthless @ss and couldnt afford a place to live or food and I still lost it all. Had I used a 22 shell out of the cushion of my truck they would have given me a house 3 square meals a laywer and I would have had a chance of getting off on insanity. Its a screwed up world.

    Best idea I ever had was to get one of the toilet seat thingy's that fit into a reciever hitch. I was very pleased with how well it works.

    Having my teenage son cut the antlers off with the Sawsall while I hold 'em. He cuts way straighter than my husband! ( my husband is a great carpenter, I was very surprised at this revelation)

    Have your husband build you a jig to put your skulls in. Then you can cut the antlers off all by yourself, incase your son is not around.

    Heath, I will bring that up to him, and he just might do it. ( My son will be away at college next year.)
    Thanks for the idea. Is that how you do it?
