Default Go Fund Me For A Deer Mount

I'm been amazed at a lot of the Go Fund Me requests in the past but this one of a guy asking for $3,000 for a full body mount of a buck may just take the cake as most ridiculous. The entitlement of some folks is mind blowing.

It really takes away from the people that really need it. What is sad, is that people will donate to it and will not donate to help someone that really needs it.

Haha. Silly reasons to raise money and it says he's donated $0 to any other campaigns. Seems pretty self absorbed.

Heck my immunotherapy is $197k alone (thank goodness for insurance). I have been off work for a year, facing a third surgery on my left leg, and now a bone biopsy in my shoulder. I have never consider asking for money. Yet guys like this have no shame and is asking for money for photo shoots and deer mounts. The entitlement is disgusting.

Nice buck, just sent 100$... NOT!

Been lots of bucks throughout the last 100 years as big and bigger that just had the horns cut off and hung in a barn for years. If it’s that important to get it mounted, pay for it yourself.

I might donate just because he called it full body and not life size. Every shoulder mount I have is life size. Hoping to get a miniature mount some day. Maybe 1/2 life size.

How about trying the GoFundMe thing called a JOB. That’s how I fund stuff. People giving him money are part of the problem. What a ***** for even asking...hope he doesn’t even come close.

You are right. Handout requests like these would go away if people just stopped giving these idiots money. Just like those guys on the street corner. If no one gave them money then wouldn't be standing there.

how many of you donated your $ to the game warden that was shot while poaching your deer? at least this guy 'says' it is not for his house(but I bet it ends up there, which is why i'll never send him a .01$)

Y'all apparently did not read the whole post. He's not doing it for himself, he's doing it because that deer is a legend and deserves more than just an ordinary shoulder mount. He's just trying to immortalize this great animal and all he's getting is grief.

whatever

You get 1 "atta girl" for that.

Why all the hate?
I was actually looking last week a taxidermists in my area for a deer I'm hunting and came across 1 that does full body mounts for $4000. When I mentioned it to the wife it was clear if I paid for a full body mount I would also be paying for a divorce. Do y'all really hate me so much that you would want to see me go through that? If I manage to see this deer again I had 2 choices until now, option 3 is y'all pay for the mount. I win, wife wins and every single woman within a 300 mile radius of me wins. All I'll need is 1/10th of the members here to donate 50cents and its a done deal.

Ill be back around mid April to discuss my tax situation.
