I spoke to Mark today. He is working diligently to get every ones work back. I have a dog in the fight as I have a fox and Auodad with him approaching 22 months. I am not defending him, just telling you that he promised he will not run on peoples money or their work.

Mark never came through like he said he would in July. I did receive a text from him saying it would be ready on August 17-18 but he hasn't came through on that date either.

I would give him a deadline and then look at other options for getting it back, refunded or taking him to court.

That is BS! Another business owner who has no idea and not organized

2 years today on my brother's bobcat. Told him in May it was the next one in line and he had no idea how it slipped through the cracks.

It's one thing to be behind, but don't straight up lie to your customers.

Cats apparently are hard to do, but all the “2 years” stories I hear make me not want to take anything to him.. I recommended him to a guy in his area just based on the work I heard about from here and the guy took two deer to him with the promise of having them done by their birthdays and both were WAY late.. if I were to take a cat to him and he told me up front 2 years I may or may not wait but I would have a lot of respect for the honesty. For someone to be told 6-8 months then it take two years is ridiculous

I got my stuff back from Mark! The WORK was incredible. He stated that he was not taking any new work until he got caught up on all the back stuff. The man has had a rough couple of years! Not defending him, but he did come thru on my stuff.

I talked to him 2 weeks ago. His shop is now in Weatherford I think he said. I called 8177579192. He’s had my buck for a year. Said it will be another month. Fingers crossed.

I’m going by there the next time I’m in Weatherford but I’m pretty sure he gave me the shaft. Can’t stand a man who lies and doesn’t do what he says.

I did read on the faces deal today that he was looking for an experienced full time taxidermist. Maybe he will get someone else hired and be able to get caught up.

My wife shot an axis in velvet 2 years ago. We were recommended to him. She talked to him a month or so ago. He said ďanother month ď and it will be ready. Iím planning on driving down to check on it.

WHY???? Do you have a animal with him??

These threads kill me..

He is a good guy and a great taxidermist that has went through some tuff times.. Life gets in the way at times FOR EVERYBODY.. I know it dam sure has for me the last 5 years....
I'm not defending his actions but I am saying Instead of constantly coming on hear and bitching and moaning and bashing the man just go get your animal and your money back.. Its simple.... Problem solved.. If your not happy go get your stuff.. Bashing this person or any person, over and over, for whatever reason, gets 0 accomplished.. I guess some people get a kick out of it..

Now a thread about dead beat customers that wont come pay when the work is done would be a good one AND a long one.. But that wouldn't solve anything either..

I dropped my cat off with Mark in Jan 2019. We did not talk about a completion timeline, but based on this thread I am guessing it may be a couple of years. I am fine with that just based on his incredible work on cats.

I kinda agree, Tim, but if he isn't answering his phone, as mentioned in a few posts, there's a problem. If nothing else, record a message to let people know that there's a delay due to personal problems.

A good guy? I guess your judge of a man’s character and mine are a little different. Ok he went through some hard times as we all do. I promise you I don’t lie to people no matter how hard the times get.If he told the truth he’d get less business. Oh and he said he wouldn't give me my deposit back only my tanned cat and a form he already purchased.

My point is that getting on a public hunting forum and complaining, and rallying the troops, does nothing to solve your problem..
Go get your stuff.. Tanning and manikins aren't free. I don't agree with not giving you what's yours as far as a deposit minus his expenses but it doesn't matter what I think.

Iíve had trouble getting ahold of him and his VM is full. I donít want my money or my cat back. I think he does good work and I want him to do mine. I wasnít trying to bash him or anything just wanted to know if there was another number I could reach him at since he moved. He told me a date and I wanted to touch base.
