Oh he's still in business .I've seen his work he does awesome waterfowl jobs .I understand people get busy but come on really? I just hope nothing happened to this gobbler because it would be heartbreaking to try and replace this triple beard .this guy could have had nothing but good words said about him if the bird was done it could have been posted on here for everyone to see his work but I think the outcome of this is going to be his business name posted on here on how not to go to this guy ..oh well .look man just get this trophy gobbler done before it gets to out of control.

First i would go over and want to see the bird, and if it's still there, which i would have my doubts @ this point. If there, It's probably freezer burnt by now and you may want to just do a tail, beard and head mount. Since the head is a replica anyways. And last, i hope you didn't pay in full when dropped off. Folks have a habit of putting those to the bottom of the pile since there is no profit and the end of the work.

Like Blake said, I'd ask to see the progress. If he can't show you a bird on a form at this point, I'd ask to take it home with me. Way too long.

Too busy to post from the computer!

Yep, ask him where he's at on the mount. After he gives you the answer, tell him, okay I'm coming in I want to see it. If he says no to that then it's time to take off the gloves. Things do happen and work does get delayed. I'm in the process of doing a turkey tail for a guy and the panel was on back order and it took several months to get so s@#$ does happen, but at two years he should have something to show you that shows he's at least working on it.

And I respect that you don't want to put this persons name on a public forum, but I for one would like to know who this person is so that I don't use them in the future. Feel free to PM the information so I don't end up in the same boat... thanks!
