Default Deer at Taxidermist length of time??

Nov 28, 2017 I dropped off my deer to a new to me taxidermist.
Initially was told 6-8 months to complete. Around the 8 month mark I had called and spoke and he said it wasn't done. No big deal, as I know not to expect a fast return on taxidermy.

Checked in with him in Nov of 2018 and sent multiple texts and finally got a response on Jan 24th, 2019 and he still had not ordered my form and it would be completed as soon as possible. Hide was already tanned and wouldn't take long for him to finish.

May was the last time I had spoke with him and said it would be done in a couple weeks.

I understand things happen with family and other personal issues happen which may push back work for a 1 man full time taxidermist.

Being on month 19 and still has not started on mine (hide has been tanned). But have been tempted to just go get my hide and horns and take it somewhere else to be completed.

Just seeing if I am the one over reacting or do most taxidermist take over twice as long to complete.

He has messed up your hide, or lost the horns or something else fishy. Taxidermy is a slow process, but not that slow.

I got mine back in about 4 months this year. My buddy has never gotten his back later than about 8mos. He does have a guy that works for him so there are 2 people there but he also has a lot of work. He guides in Colorado for Elk then brings them all home to do. He also gets a lot of Africa work form people. He does great work, but he also stays on top of it.

That is what has been going through my mind. I sure hope this is not the case. I am starting to think he may think I will just forget about it.

Have a buddy that already received his Nov 2018 deer back and looks great. I am continuing to wait for twice his length of time, frustrating.

Sense he specified a time frame and you are now approaching 3x's over that allotted time frame I would be fairly concerned. I am use to a 10-12 month wait from the couple of taxi's I use and if it runs a few months over its not a big deal.

If i was almost 33 months in that would not be acceptable or okay and I would get getting my stuff and taking it elsewhere.

Kind of local, as of right now do not want to drag him through the mud without knowing exactly what has been going on. But will keep you updated.

Something's fishy. If you're having a hard time getting ahold of him especially. I'd bet money he avoids you like the plague the minute you mention you want to come pick up your stuff. Hope he does you right and there's some logical explanation but it doesn't sound promising.

Yea I definitely would not let him know I was on my way. I would just show up and get it. I would also ask for a refund for most of my money if it is tanned and all of my money if it is not.

First I called a few times got one answer. So I just thought he was busy and has been text ever since. I just shrugged him not texting back alot of the time being he may not like to text. But, I did it for my paper trail and takes not time to respond. I know some family issues arose. But, I am getting impatient now.

Lost a turkey like that several years ago. Half down up front. Stopped answering phone. Went to business it was boarded up. Went to sheriffs office, found out there had already been many charges filed so I jumped on ban wagon. A year later he calls me, tells me a taxidermist in Colorado has my turkey. Says all he would get out of it is the other half I owed him. Got number called taxi, he assured me he had MY turkey and if other peoples ducks and geese. Idk but he delivered a finished turkey to my house a couple of months later and I paid him. Still not 100% sure itís mine. Crazy stuff. Oh and he asked me to drop charges, I did.

Rule #1 never ever leave the horns or antlers to any trophy with a taxi till they call you back for the final process
I don’t trust any guy running a taxidermist shop all them have a tendency to fly off the rails at one time or another, and you may never see the horns or the taxi again
I do pay a 1/2 deposit but would rather lose that than the trophy

So repeat NEVER Ever trust any taxidermist with a trophy
Money can be replaced but never a trophy animal

This is spot on - I ALWAYS get my horns and keep them with me until the taxi says he is ready to mount them -

I was in the outfitting business for 30 + years and got burned a couple of times early on
And if a taxidermist doesnít want our steady supply of white tails, mulie, and pronghorn, nilgai on our simple terms I wouldnít do business with them
Same goes for the meat processor ( clean, quality, prompt and zero attitude)

IMO ANY taxi taking over a year to do a deer mount is bad news period - I drop mine off in Nov-Dec and by March-April he is calling for me to come pick it up -

Your taxi must not be very busy. I get worried if they say it will take maybe 4 months or less. I expect at least 10 to 12 months from the taxi's I use!

I think a 6-8 month turn around is a good time frame on normal mount , 9-10 if shipping is involved or year if a special/ unique request ( he should be sending you progressive pictures if a special request)

We are fortunate to have two very good taxi's down here & both take 1-2 years...the time doesn't bother me as much as the run around. Pretty much the norm for the better ones to have these sort of lead times.

Also, I will not leave the horns with the taxi...take them home & just call me when ready for them. Might as well enjoy them & have possession of the main ingredient during the wait.

If I were you, I would get in there & grab your bone!!

Thanks guys wanted to give him the benefit. Nice guy and donít think any ill intent. Just ready to get it back, but little more time will tell. I reached out to him tonight and he said my deer is on the stand today. Coincidence? I donít know, but I would guess should be done and ready to pick up by this weekend. So will keep updated.

If it was on the stand today don't expect it this weekend. Any deer mount that I do needs to dry for at least 10 days to 2 weeks or longer and then finish work needs to be completed.

Good luck. It would have been better if he told you that on the phone and then you walked through his door

I have a feeling you wouldn't have seen your deer on that stand. Did he tell you it would be ready this weekend or did you assume that part? He's not leaving much drying time if that's the case.

to the contrary - he is busy - he and his wife both do the work and have used them for years - so have others on our lease - does a great job -

I have the exact same story! I doubt we took it to the same person but its been 19 months and still no deer. I know it doesnt take that long I am just not a priority client so I wont be taking mine back. I took my sons deer to a guy that at least will return your texts or answer the phone...

I dabble a little in taxidermy. It’s all about customer service. Do not make any hard set dates on when you will have a person’s critter done, and always call them and let them know what’s going on. A lot of guys take on more than they can handle and get way far behind.

Hopefully your deer will turn out ok. I probably would’ve gone and gotten my horns.

I would ask him for a pic of the deer once it’s mounted.

Ya was a little weary about a new taxidermist that I do not know. But, we will see.

Yes getting the horns for sure next time. Never even really knew that was a thing. This isnt a giant, just a sentimental deer as I shot it on my families land. Would hate to loose it.

Lol, well its about an hour or a little over an hour from my house. With a newborn kind of hard to get away at the moment or I would. I was just assuming didn't know how long it takes for one to dry. After looking around looks like drying takes between 2-4 weeks. I'll just ask for a picture in the mean time.

Yea, I assumed it wouldnt take that long to dry. I was wrong for sure, but did ask for pictures.

Well, got the text today that the deer is done and picking up today. May have taken longer than initially told, but glad it worked out for me better than some. Was thinking worst case scenario. Just a little update and couple pictures. As this deer was more sentimental from where it was shot than a giant.
