Still waiting.......

....on the 10 point I took on the first day of rifle season <u>2008</u>.

I keep calling the guy and he tells me it is "almost done" or "only a couple more days" or "you will have it by the end of the week" or "3 more days and it will be done, I'll call you".

Yet here I am waiting for my buck. I gave the guy half of the money and the other half is sitting there just waiting.

I even told him if he couldn't finish it that was fine, just give me back my antlers and my money.

He also has a ringneck from 2008 that my Stapdad took to him. He says that is done too but it "needs a day or too to be fully ready".

I don't know what to do with this guy. This is very upsetting and I am tired of waiting. Since 2008 come on! Any advice?

...but those that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. -Isaiah 40:31

Re: Still waiting.......

Took two years to get back a snow goose that my son harvested. Was told upfront that it would be at least one year. In retrospect, if my son were not with me, I would have gone to someone else.
Did I mention it cost $425??

Re: Still waiting.......

How about a name so that others don't have it happen to them? Have you tried stopping at his shop?

Re: Still waiting.......

Wow, I have heard the line you can not rush perfection, but 2008 . . . It is time to knock on this guys door. I knew a guy that did some tax. work and he told me that the more a person called the farther back on the list his work went. . . needless to say I took my cape/antlers to the guy he badmouthed the most. That is the best mount I ever got. Good luck and keep us posted.

There is no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid people asking questions.

Re: Still waiting.......

I've got a buck at a taxi around here too. since Nov 06. He won't answer or return calls. Natures tales was his name. POS in my opinion.

Have you visited his studio and talked to him in person? Did you have a deposit on the piece? Or did you just drop it off at the cheapest place you could find and left without leaving a deposit or getting an invoice?
