    How to deal with bad taxidermy???

    I am literally asking for a friend. Who, how does one report a taxidermy business that is screwing someone over? Example, took deposit and game and not returning calls, texts over a year later. The business is doing the same to others and has had a family falling out amongst each other and is basically defunct at this point. All the couple wants is there horns back at this point. Is there a state agency they can report them to? I have only had good luck with the limited dealings with taxidermist I’ve used but never dealt with this one so I’m no help to them. Thanks

    Yup. H&R Wildlife Designs in Safford. Started off good, ran the one good employee off, went to crap after that

    I don’t understand people who get into business that have no regard for customers.

    Unit 1 question

    Got some questions on Unit 1. Not e scouting or asking for good areas to hunt. PM me if you are familiar with the unit concerning deer hunting. Again, it’s not questions on where the deer are at, or your honey holes, I’d take those, but that’s not what I’m asking, lol! Thanks

    Vortex's Lifetime Transferable Warranty Is The Real Deal...

    Never understood why so many dislike them. They are good optics with a great warranty. No they may not be the Leica. Swarovski, etc but they aren't priced like them either so I wouldn't expect the same. For the money they really are pretty good.

    New to coyote hunting

    I like to find open areas facing a thick wash or canyon, as to get a clear shot once they emerge. Sit a few hundred yards out. Or get close by or in the wash or canyon and be ready with a shotgun as it will be a fast, close shot. Seems everything alive loves a thick wash or canyon.

    Best Tripod for the money???

    I appreciate the generous offer. These forums really do have some great people. yes being taller does make things more challenging in life sometimes. The smaller compact tripod I have is a vanguard and I can say, I really like it. I also have a vortex full size and it’s been good but it’s a little light, which can be good sometimes but not in wind when standing. So for the next one I think something more robust and tall is in order.

    Stand some, and sit in a chair. I have a smaller backpacking tripod I use for longer hikes so I don’t need to worry about even shorter use. I’m 6’4

    Animas loses a local mentor/coach UPDATED!

    Sounds like an amazing person. Animas had some great athletes/teams for such a middle of nowhere, hole in the wall, type of town. So many now days could use him as an example on how to lead. Our schools are filled with so many terrible coaches ruining more athletes than helping these days. So many kids never playing sports or quitting because of it. Great coaches, teachers, etc are worth more than any amount of money. If you’ve had either great or bad, or both, you definitely understand.

    MEOPTA vs SWARO???

    This is true. But I don't think optics are as cut and dry as everyone wants to believe. With something dealing with the eyes, I think there's to many variables at play to honestly say one way or another. I'm no eye doctor but I be interested to know how eye conditions( eye glasses, Lasik, contacts, etc) between people play a factor in looking through various types of optics. Meopta, Swaro, Zeiss, Leica, and a few others are not cheap for a reason( I want to try the Meoptas or even the Sig Zulu 9s myself) but if someone made better glass then all of them and it was cheaper, would people honestly admit or acknowledge it?? Interesting to see
