    I will and I'll sleep better as well without worrying about a freezer.

    I think if things went bad the smell might be a dead giveaway!

    My wife had a new car that kept not starting. They claimed I was erasing the computer that let the car recognize key fob chip because I had too much static electricity. Lol. My brother is a mechanic and when I told him that he said he believed it because I've never been able to wear digital watches. Lol.

    still wondering how he called you "with" your deer after 9 months and you were excited to see the " results" that would mean it was done

    crappy thing to have to go through... for both you (customer) and your taxidermist. Truly it is EVERY taxidermists worst nightmare! You will know how much your taxidermist wants to make things right by his desire to 'fix' the situation, no matter what it cost him (reasonably, of course). Ask him if he knows what the Golden Rule is.

    Wow! Words wouldn’t describe how livid I would’ve been to hear that. I always put the heads im doing as european mounts in my back yard on top of a tall stack of pallets where no varmints can run off with them but all the bugs and flies can take care of the leftovers. Not the same case but similar story my father knows a guy who was hunting a lease not far from us. He shot the biggest deer he’d ever seen. Made a bad shot and tried to trail it. Eventually called tracking dogs in. When they finally found the deer the antlers where cut off. Some sorry s.o.b. was out there trespassing found the deer and cut them off. They never recovered the antlers . Said the bases where the size of a coke can.

    He said when he got the call, he thought it would be to tell him it was done. Only when the taxidermist began to talk did he realize that the call was for a different purpose. No where in his first post did he say the taxidermist told him anything other than he lost his antlers.
     
  16. Find a different taxidermist. Yours is negligent and just may have them on his own deer in his house. Sounds shady to me. Sorry for your loss that's bs
