porky question.

i asked a local guy about getting a porky done this year, he told me its a pain and pricey because the quills fall out while doing it, and have to be glued back ?

i've never heard of that before and was wondering if its just smoke blowing, is this true ?

Re: porky question.

Just dropped one of at Trop in Elizabethtown on saturday. Kathy told me she has done many over the years and they need special attention, do to the quills on both sides of the skin. Getting poked and also wrecking them from the inside.

Re: porky question.

My brother and I took 4 on saturday while grouse hunting. We talked to trop in etown as well. As we were both thinking of having one done. It's a little pricey to get one done because they are tedious to do. I guess I will have to wait. I have way to much other stuff up there right now.
