I found his work on facebook pretty easy. Seems to do nice work with white tails. Not sure I would work with him on any other species.

taxidermy guy, you are wasting your time talking to anyone about this tick law, I know, I have gone as high up the bureaucratic chain as possible. You can fly in a cape to DFW from Mexico RAW unfrozen and you are good to go. Bring a cape across Columbia that has been frozen for a month with a dead tick and it will be rejected.
Please everyone listen to me on what I am about to say. This will be the best tip you get today. DO NOT discuss anything about your deer capes, the people working the bridge or ANYTHING else you do not want the USDA agents to hear while they are in their office. They have a listening device at the waiting area at Columbia. I believe they intentionally make you wait while they listen to your conversations hoping to get some information they can use against you. This is NOT speculation, it is a fact. Be very carefull while at the Columbia bridge while checking your deer or anything else.
And now you know.

Looking good. Deer are hammering the feed! Both cotton seed and pellets. Ready for some rain soon but everything is still in pretty good shape.

Hows everyone doing with sheds? Any good ones yet?!

Still early, but report from the ranch is probably a 1/3 or so have dropped already.

Hopefully this rain chance Wednesday materializes, we need it!

What's the laws on declaring and paying taxes on items? I've read various websites some say you have to declare anything over $75, other says $300. Would I have to declare the following if it's in the bed of my truck.

6 ea - 1.5' pieces of 4x4
6 ea - 5' pieces of 2x4
1 ea - 5x5 plywood
1 ea - 5x5 rubber mat
1 ea - feeder

I usually have an itemized list, ( my receipt), with dollar amounts on it and totaled. I present that when they stop me. Plan on 16%. Thats the rate of tax.

These are heading down with me on my trailer. I am thinking my receipt will say $75/ea, plus a couple home made tripods that I will probably list at $100. Will be crossing @ Columbia.

Your receipt can have any price you want and if they think its low they will google it and charge you 16% on the internet price.

Interesting, so I can't take my platform down unassembled? It has to be screwed together first?

It's a 5x5 base I was just going to screw together when we got to the ranch. I was going to itemize it all on a list for the 16%, just easier to transport in pieces.

What if a box blind is in panels to be screwed together at the ranch, is that legal if you pay your 16%?

We’ve never had an issue with dissembled stands and platforms we include that into itemized list and they tax us off that. Never had any issue
