    All the supply companies are hurting. The same problems with McKenzie are occuring across the board. It is an economy thing among other things.

    President Biden happened , like everything else , form foam is petroleum based . Materials all way round are thin and far between, and hard to get .

    I ordered from them 2 deer forms. The young lady helping me asked if I wanted them to ship from PA instead of NC to save on shipping? I said that will be great as I live in Michigan just over the Ohio line. $87 bucks to ship 2 forms! For those not aware Ohio touches PA! I am done and ask for eyes and your told their waiting on them to be made! Sad times as they bought out everyone they could kinda got rid of there competition then can't take care of their customers. I have 3 deer to finish and I'm done for the year so my pains almost done for the year. Good luck all glad I'm not looking at 100 plus to do.

  6. Why are you bitching on a internet forum ?
    Go call tohickon get your eyes there ,McKenzie hasn't bought out everyone contrary to popular belief . Order deer eyes from them. Or call headquarters supply or matuska supply or research mannikins . Quit complaining about shipping it's here to stay and people are in business to make money. You seem this coming when Biden was elected and gas prices went up and petroleum products . Get with the program people

    PSU . . . You do understand what a forums are for correct? People discuss things good and bad. You could've ask me if I found eyes somewhere else? If you as smart as you come across you'd read that I ordered two forms from McKenzie , no eyes , no ear liners and no ear butts. Ya think I mount my deer without those items? Nope ordered them from other companies as I use a multitude of supply companies. I started using McKenzie back when you could pick up their catalog with one hand so I'm familiar with their company. I've been doing this taxi stuff for 40 plus years I understand how the games played. You come across as pretty assuming and to be honest an ass. Also I have enough life experience to understand exactly what's happening with products and delivery costs but I am allowed to not only have an opinion but to freely express it on this and any other forum. Try to read what you write before ya hit send . . . if it reads like the above hit delete that way you'll sound as smart as you think you are.

  12. 25 years old . And all you old ****ers can't get with the times and figure out this stuff . Shipping isn't going down and prices of our materials isn't going down . The McKenzie thing is a dead horse that's been beat a million times get over it . Make your own materials or learn to modify and move on .

    Did they owe you something?
    I couldn’t ship a box that size for anywhere close to that and that’s through my regular jobs ups or fedex account and it’s volume discount!
