Re: how much longer should we wait!

What time frame were you given when you dropped it off?

Just swing by to see how things are going....won't hurt. See what the progress is...it doesn't take long to actually do the mount. Full time or part time will be the biggest factor.

Re: how much longer should we wait!

I'm in the same boat. My taxidermist has been great on work and turn around time, but this year is not so good. Don't want to rush him, but enough is enough. One week means one week (7 days)

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

Re: how much longer should we wait!

I think you guys created your own problem.

8 months to a year? That's not a timeframe I would have agreed with. That's pretty broad. I personally don't see a 4 month disparity in 'delivery'. What is the big question mark?

There are only so many steps involved with mounting a deer/turkey/fish, etc. The one big delay is getting the hide tanned usually.

Sounds like you have a lazy, procrastinating taxidermist. I bet it didn't take him 8 to 12 months to cash your deposit check. Live and learn.

Have gun, will travel.

Re: how much longer should we wait!

For what its worth... give him a call, and in a respectful manner, ask him for a more specific completion date, and (respectfully) remind him of the fact that you were anticipating the completed turkey a few months earlier, based upon his originally stated time frame. You never know, the man may have had certain personal issues that hindered progress on his work. Most taxidermists have little or no intention of purposefully misleading their customers.
