    Word of caution if shipping anything frozen or raw via usps . Ordered a fox squirrel off here and was sent out last tuesday 1/19/2021 . Said I might get it 1/28/2021 . Was told they are still sorting packages from Nov. Ship at your own risk .

    USPS works for a few folks on this forum but not for me! UPS has never lied to me yet and packages arrive when they predict. Sometimes they get a little rough on a box full of critters but not often.

    USPS has been totally worthless since Thanksgiving. Every package I have shipped since then has been late by a couple of days. One box took 16 days to go from Wisconsin to north Kansas.
    The only place USPS has been pretty good is shipping to the west coast. The few boxes I have shipped that way where all on time.

    USPS lost a package from walmart.com for my wife (ordered 7 December 2020). After over a month of sitting in Jacksonville, Florida we contacted Walmart.com and they gave us a refund as lost in the mail. They said if it ever made it here to keep it, or donate it. The package is still listed as being in Florida. We got it about a week ago! Their tracking system sucks! Don't trust USPS with frozen critters for sure.

    USPS is trash! Can’t believe we even trusted them with our election, what a joke.

    several of us that used to use usps to ship frozen animals near went out of business this year with 2 day priority taking 10-15 days. I had no choice but to say everything I sell is 100% at buyers risk , in regard to shipping delays no fault of mine. I ship mondays only, everything insulated well, box and all frozen hard as a rock. so no problem on my end. my new policy was needed, or just go out of business. have switched 100% to fedex and no problems...so far. I have found out I need to raise prices a good bit on shipping as I am taking a financial beating on items to the west coast,. I still uses usps flat rate boxes for skulls, but that is all. on them if they arrive late no issue

    USPS has been working pretty good thru the west half of the US. For some reason, they have had a HUGE backup on mail from mid West and eastward, this is for regular mail and priority packages. Hopefully it will get better.

    USPS is all I use, just shipped a cape from Iowa to Virginia last week and took 48 hours and arrived still frozen. Received a cape from New Mexico 2 weeks ago still frozen from them. Not once had an issue and probably shipped and gotten 50 things in 2020. I must be lucky

    You must be Brian. I received a raw deer cape from Michigan to Ohio and it took almost two weeks. You can guess how it smelled.
