Aunt Betty, that's not my goal at all. I don't care if you go to them. Both are accomplished though.
My intent is to keep trolling to a minimum. It is not the case here, but I don't like to have to differentiate between trolling and a simple question. If there were no sponsors here, I'd absolutely have no issue with it at all. They however pay to advertise, and allowing loophole advertising without paying would not be fair for them.
I have always asked that people simply ask this way: "I'm looking for a taxidermist near XXXX, anyone know of a reputable taxidermist near this locale? PM me please with details".
This way we are all cool. I understand we have guys who don't know how to package or ship, but, I personally would never want to be restricted to my particular area, if I felt that was my only choice?
We have covered several times this topic. It is in the newbie question sticky.
If you want to ask a specific question on a particular taxidermist. Ask it in the State forum he resides in, because you'll stand a better chance getting a response. The guys here may know the name, but unless he's very popular, unlikely? Personally, I know of five Texas taxidermists I would be comfortable with. I don't know this guy, but Texas is a Big state. Lol
This isn't easy trying to keep everyone happy. This is the forum owners, the sponsors, and other taxidermists who don't advertise here that have needed the same reminders.
