    Where can you get chocolate covered Cheerios? I've never seen them, but they sound good.

    The "Old kind!" I guess I am a genuine antique! I still the oatmeal from the round cardboard box!
     
  9. Man oh man they are good. I just put some in a bowl dry and eat it like a snack.
    I got mine from Walmart There are several other flavored to. Treat your self to a box.


    Ron if you didn't tear up the track how so much you cold afford to buy a box.
    Not to mention all those $$$$ wasted on a non producing elk trip.
     
  10. Is there any other kind! Round box all the way.

    I believe KLibby is correctly pointing out a very common math mistake in many price arguments. So many guys (not saying any of you, just saying) will say "I make more money doing 100 at $300 than you will doing 50 at $600". Uhhh...dont forget to add that material cost twice, too.

    And hes also correct to question why every customer willing to pay more is deemed a picky prick in these arguments. Since when? I like those customers, they want what I offer!

    Finally, to answer Glenn, I was always getting right around 100 heads at that price, realistically between 70 to 100 and teens or so.

    Its hard to beat cocoa crispies and chocolate syrup.

    Whatever you charge, make sure it is as much as you can get away with! The car dealership has no problems charging you out the butt to work on you car because they know they have you over the barrel. They don't give their services away.

    The problem is, taxidermy is a luxury item and when it comes to putting grub in your family's gut or a head on the wall, guess which will win! I have plenty of people ask me to do taxidermy for them every year and I flatly turn them down. They seem to have this view around here that since I have a full time job I can afford to do it for less. Forget that nonsense! If I do it after hours it should cost more because that is overtime now. And I am not going to hassle with anyone who thinks $300.00 is a fair price. I have better things to do with my time than give it away.

    So, let me get this straight. Cocoa crispies when mixed with milk creates a chocolate syrup and you add chocolate syrup to that? Wow.
