A guy near me paid something like $8000 for a school in Montana, I think, total waste of time. He calls my buddy REGULARY to get direction on a mount. My buddy offered him a deal for $2000 and with NO time frame to learn in his shop. You keep doing it until you get it right and YOU feel comfortable with an animal, then you move on. He turned it down, and has the B**ls to call and get direction. I was told that most schools only show you the first steps on animals and you sometimes don't do the finishing work on your animals because of time restraints. The instructors finish for you. This guy displays work that was finished by the school instructors, and then wonders why he gets complaints when costomers get their mounts back with sub-par work.
Hey, did you grab the blind bag with the shells when we left the truck?
Safetys, use them: If you can see red, you can get dead!
