I am putting out this notice to anyone thinking about using DOUBLE BUCK TAXIDERMY to stay away from this one. I have waited this long to make a post, because I wanted my bird back first, for fear that I would never see it again if I said something. My wife bought me the Commissioner's tag for turkey back in 2012 and I harvested a gould's using that tag in March 0f 2013 .My wife also purchased a gift certificate while at a wildlife banquet here in AZ and the taxidermist was Double Buck Taxidery so she took my bird to this shop along with 2 antelope heads that we wanted to be euro mounted , used the certificate and paid cash to him to get a full body strut mount on a base plus the 2 euro mounts. Last March (2014) I was told by Rick while he was at the AES banquet that it was all done except the base needed some work and it would be ready next week. After many LIES and EXCUSES, Fast forward to November 19th 2014 after having to send him a certified letter threatening him with a law suit he finally informed me that he did not have the bird that he farms out his bird's to a guy in the valley and he has our bird.So we ask for his name and phone number so we can go get the bird and after a few more texts asking him to give us the guys name he finally gives it to my wife.So we call this gentleman and he says yes he has the bird but it is not done.we ask him if he has been paid in full for doing the bird and informs us NO HE HAS NOT.I tell him i will pay the remainder of what he is owed by RICK but he say's that is not nessesary that he will finish it and let me have it. So today I finally received my bird thanks to that man and he did a great job on it ,BUT back when I talked to Rick in March, I found out that was when he asked the other guy to start on my bird and to do a rush job on it after leaving it with him for over a year with no word from Rick. There is alot more to this story because as mentioned before we paid RICK to do euro mounts on our antalope heads and the picture I am adding is what I got, not what I call euro mounts at all and I wanted my turkey to be on a floor base not a wall mount on a limb as what i got. I will never use or send anyone to this shop EVER and I would be getting in touch with him and getting my animals back from him if you have sent something to him !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I HOPE THIS WARNING OF A BAD TAXIDEMIST WILL GET SOME OF THE OTHER PEOPLE WHO HAVE HAD BAD DEALINGS TO SPEAK OUT ABOUT THEM. I have filed every text and email we sent or received to RICK LOPEZ at DOUBLE BUCK taxidermy and will keep them. Mark Nixon Euro mounts, that are not Euro mount My Goulds
