    I was called from a Washington state phone number and a person that I have never known or heard of the other day. The guy wanted to have a lifesize mount cougar remounted. He wasn't happy with the mount that he said was still at a shop in the Southwest. He texted me photos and it was indeed a poor looking mount. He got a deal on it and said his guide took it to this taxidermist that was unknown to him. He was willing to ship the mount to Wyoming to have it remounted and then the new mount shipped to him in California. He didn't add up. I told him it was illegal to ship a cougar mount, tanned cougar etc into California and he assured me he knew that but that he could get around the laws on that ? The California part sounded alarm bells for me.. I turned him down at any price. Thinking on it I would bet a lot it was a Sting call from the Feds. Maybe not. Oh well. Careful out there.
