You seem to be pretty good at casting aspersions at people that you don't know. It doesn't really bother me because I always consider the source, ya know what I mean?
Are you capable of reading my initial response to the OP and considering it objectively or not? I did not ask you what YOU would do---I simply brought up a possible legal ramification---you and others chose to attach an emotional aspect to it.

Please tell all of us how you know this to be true? Did you have a personal conversation with the guy?

If there are a 100 "definitions" of "good" taxidermy the inverse is automatically true. You work to your own personal definition which may or may not align with any other definition. You seem to insist upon bashing other taxidermist work on a public forum who do not fit your personal definition of "good". In many other industries such behavior is considered to be poor form=====unprofessional. If you wish to be viewed that way by all means continue, I won't try to stop you.
You could have said whatever you wanted to about the situation to the OP in a PM to him but instead posted it to a public forum for all to see. You might think that makes you look cool or something but to many people who view what you wrote it has the opposite effect. Thats probably why you don't see someone like say Mike Boyce forum bashing on others work. But you could probably teach Mike a thing or two about business right?
Finally dude give up the argument of comparing taxidermy to anything else. House painting? Really? Do us all a favor and type 'duck taxidermy" into google images. How many pics are 'good" and how many are 'bad'? Guess what---someone paid money for just about all of the ducks pictured, regardless of what you THINK about them. If you cannot grasp that reality then you will remain as part of one of the biggest stumbling blocks to taxidermy in general. The truth is that there is a customer for every level of taxidermy as well as a taxidermist that will fill the demand at every level.
