    One of those fishing calls,
    Uh, yeah, do you mount eagles or
    Have any Mallards to sell? Noooo! Do you have any birds for sale or can you mount any bird of prey for me. No again but thanks for playing. Where I used to live I had a warden for a customer that lived nearby. Part of me would like to call him over and then invite the caller to come over to buy a duck.

    I got a few when I had my taxidermy shop in Alaska. (Illegal to sell big game mounts as well)...

    George The older I get, the better I was.

    I alway tod them: "Sure! I can do a beautiful mount." They say, "Great. When can I bring it over." My reply was, " Just remember, I dont allow a single raptor to come into my shop without the owner supplying me with a letter with a state or federal officials signature on legal letterhead stationery giving you permission to have it." I then gave them the phone numbers of DNREC and the US Fish and Wildlife. Never had a single one call back.
