    George The older I get, the better I was.

    My buddy Dino Hugon was altering a deer form but was having difficulty cutting through. He said the form felt heavier than normal but continued in frustration. Finally he just jerked the form and it snapped, exposing a 6 inch "C" clamp embedded in the foam. Wonder who's looking for a "C" clamp. received_540923269979208.jpeg

    If that was an old WASCO form I may know who was responsible! Lol

    Does this mean we need to start cutting forms up to see what’s inside?
    How exciting to open a large box containing shipped forms.

    Wonder what else finds its way into forms? I’ve cut a few open that looked like a loaf of sourdough bread from all the fissures in it.
    I did through an elk form in a brush burn pile ONCE! If a Taxidermy supply house ever catches fire run!

    Reminds me of when hounddoggy found a honey bun in the wrapper in his hide paste.

    Supply companies do that so they can charge more for shipping. :D

    I knew a taxidermist back in the 70s who was arrested and went to prison for packing fiberglas form mounts full of drugs and shipping and recieving them as such.

    Sounds like Rick Carter might have been missing a c-clamp at one time or another ! Might have to start weighing each form or have them x-rayed ! LOL
