I shot a nice palmated (sp?) bull in November of 2010. I do game processing, and hooked up with a taxidermist through a friend for a shoulder mount. He came and picked up my animal at the shop and told me four to six months. I was shocked at that fast of a turn around time. Long story short, I've talked to him two, MAYBE three times since he picked it up. I didn't call him for the first six months. In July he said August, Called him end of August he said late September/beginning October. Haven't talked to him since. He leaves his phone off. I leave him a voicemail once a week asking to get my bull back, no hard feelings, just wanna take it to someone else. I've not been a pest, rude, or impatient. I just want my animal back. Find out where he lives and just show up? I already gave him $400, which he said was for the tanning of my cape and the rest was expected when the mount was finished.
