    N565 in stock

    It will start showing up at other places this week or next. Midway had it yesterday. Also Bruno’s just got a bunch of VV powders. Not sure what they have as the email said no texting Jason for holds. Might be worth a drive if anyone is needing it

    Man this is a great deal! Same price I paid for my non fuel model. I wanted to get these but couldn't justify the $200 diffrence. Buy with confidence, Dan is a good guy! If you want to trade for some skulls this year let me know! 😂

    Taxidermist: Friend or Foe?

    I think you are absolutely right about this! Maybe I need to take some business classes! This is not my first business and I know I have made some mistakes in my previous one. The one thing I know I did right was take care of my customers. When I sold that business I had a lot of people angry with me. The new owner DID NOT do the job the way I did and lost a lot of customers because of it.

    After all these years, you'd think I would know this already!

    Taxidermist: Friend or Foe?

    I have first hand experience that tanneries do get behind and lead times are not always as stated. I am not sticking up for the above taxidermist in any way but through all of this covid BS, things are not the same in any industry. I will also say there is a big difference in the quality of the tanning from pre-covid to now. I see a lot more holes in capes now than the year prior to covid. I only have one year of experience with this before, but I assume that is due to having to hire new employees and the learning curve involved. McKenzie and others are back ordered on a lot of forms. I ordered a bear form over a month and a half ago and still haven't received it. I received 10 other forms that were ordered but not that one. 2 years ago it would have been to our house in a week. Again things are not the same anymore. Taxidermist's tend to take on more work than they can handle. Its hard to say no to money. I'm sure most of us can agree on that. I am going through the same deal myself right now. My wife and I have been trying to start a taxidermy business for the last 4 years. I've done euro mounts for probably 6-7 years now. I work a full time job M-F, and most of the time work more hours than I care to. Luckily my wife is a rockstar and is the one that has done all of the shoulder mounts that have come in (all friends or co-workers that know we are still learning). In the little time that we have been doing this, we have seen how hard it can be. Posts like this make me realize that I could quit my job and probably be able to make it work, but that's a tough thing to do. Like I stated earlier, I like money and having a steady income is important to me. Customers are also important to me. Sorry for the rant. I can tell you this, if you called me to inquire about your mount, I would be honest with you and tell you what's going on with it. I feel honesty is the best policy, even if that makes you upset.

    WTB 25-06 brass

    Where are you located? I have a bunch of once fired that I would be willing to sell to you. I sold my 25-06 almost 10 years ago and still have a bunch of brass from it.
