    Bill, I mounted a deer I shot, does that count? ;) I'm a legend in my own mind, the rest of the world just hasn't figured it out yet. :mad:

    With my fleshing business ive been asked by taxidermists not to repeat any names that I have because usually every cape has hunter info. Ive done some
    big name people that have hunted in Ohio and nobody knew. The biggest reason they tell me is they don't want a shop full of people wanting to see
    the horns ect. Not worth the hassle I actually have a couple big names here right now.

    Used to do state record fish for free. What a dumb move that was. Never again.

    1. You are the first one that gets forgotten.

    2. They will hound you to get it done sooner.

    I've mounted for a few celebrities (Tennessee, think country music) and they all came to me. Did not make a big deal of it or use it to promote my business. Treated them the same as a regular customer and they all paid full price. No big deal!!

    If JR was any kind of guy, he would pay you top dollar for the mount and offer to give you an endorsement for free as icing on the cake (provided he is happy with your work!). If I was rich and famous, I would bring good people who deal with me along as well. Maybe Im just a fool. Thats how I treat people who treat me good.
