In my opinion, 99.99% of all taxidermists are hard working, ethical individuals who provide a great service to hunters. Unfortunately, I've just had a bad outcome with an individual on Prince of Wales. IAW forum rules, I will not post the name of the individual or business. Simply put, I left a black bear with an individual who hasn't shipped it and it's been 7 months. Upon further inquiry, I've found out that the state troopers may have been involved. At least two other individuals may have been affected. The last report was the shop was in disarray, hides were on the floor and there was a smell of rotting flesh. The ADF&G Wildlife Conservation Office is aware of the situation and is involved. I DO NOT wish to bash individuals in this thread but I DO wish to learn from others on how how they have resolved conflicts with less than ethical business owners. Please refrain from using names of individuals and businesses but feel free to share your stories and how they were resolved. Send me a PM if you like.
