Re: taxidermy tips
I just listed a coyote ped mount on ebay that was supposed to be sold to a guy who bought a buck skull in for a euro. He still hasn't picked the skull up, nor any contact with me since august last year when he said he was going through a divorce- but only telling me after I completed the work. The coyote was just a spare I had for sale but I held it for him for quite a while.
Another unclaimed lot I have are furs with a balance of 870.00 due and a tanned soaked down lifesizable 5 foot black bear in the freezer worth at least 400.00 owed. The customer paid for his coyote with his deposit, and he did pick that up. He used to be prompt to pick up and always paid, but then he lost his job. I haven't heard a word from him since 2008 and pretty soon I'm going to see what all I have to do with the DNR, which I know involves a certified letter to his last known address with me stating he has xx days to pick up and pay in full or all this stuff becomes my property. I can sell the furs pretty easily, but not sure if I will get the price I charge for each, however I would still make something which is better than sitting on them and getting nothing.
