    I love the show. It's just entertainment folks. Can U imagine the free exposure Xtreme Taxidermy has gotten? We are taxidermist, so we will have a different outlook than 99.999% of other Americans. I would try to protrey our industry in a more professional manner, but different strokes different folks.

    That's pure horseship. I would hope that none of us are interested in degrading and bastardizing what we do for the sake of some clown show director. (I know we have some self-admitted taxidermy whores who say they'd do anything to make a buck, however.)

    Not to worry Bill. That segment that doesn't have a clue still won't have a clue after watching that bunch of yahoos.

    Watching Stuffers is kinda like going into WalMart and taking a good look around after a bad day. You just have to feel better about yourself and what you do. :)

    A friend of mine sent this saying to me and I have it on my office wall, "Most of the people who criticize what you're doing are people who can't do it themselves"

    That's what gives us license. Some of us here CAN do taxidermy.

    Thank you Justin. I figure I'm not a good taxidermist using the scale I use for others, but I know one thing, I did work like that in 1958 and I'm already up to 1970. That guy damned sure can't say that.

    Its still just a show. All Dolled up to be entertaining. No one wants to sit and watch one of us rednecks taking apart and putting back together a deer for an hour unless they are taxidermist and then in that case buy a video from mckenzie or WASCO. I dont understand why everyone always fusses about this. It is the same thing with mounted in Alaska, someone on here always points out how fake it is. If you like it watch it if you dont pick up the remote and change the channel.

    cwt do you realize that bitching is one if our inalienable rights? And if you don't like listening to us bitch, just don't read the post.
  19. Wow, the quote traditional taxidermists comment about the dorsal skun dog chapped my a$$. Do they not attempt to do traditional taxidermy there as well? As someone mentioned Dixie was the smartest one of the bunch. Sad thing is I tuned in because I also freeze dry and figured maybe I would gain a little knowledge. Then he didn't even know if he soaked a head in water it would re-hydrate and he could move the eye he botched, until Dixie told him, LOL! I just felt like they were a little below average mammal guys with bad birds and horrible fish, that couldn't resist the offer for a TV show. Until the moron started talking crap about a traditional taxidermist being an idiot for dorsal skinning?. I liked mounted in Alaska much better. Russ was way more of a professional, a good businessman, and the guys on there didn't seem like the result of multiple generations of inbreeding. Oh forgot to mention guys and gal.

    2 bad they can't get some cameras in the shops of some of the guys out there that could really teach us something and show this as a true art.
  20. We need to force Micheal P to take over the show. His wild antics and ways of intertaining/ choice wording is all the drama and intertaining needed.
