Tenn. Extreme

in march of 2006, my friends and i went to tenn. to hunt boars with tenn. extreme, to make a long story short, we had a great time. BUT, their is one thing..... their were 4 of us that went and all took boars, the problem myself and one other of my friends are having, is that we all paid to have our heads mounted. and two of us got our heads in the time frame that was told to us (3months) and myself and one other have not. We feel that we have been givin the run around, and that we will never see our money (275.00 a piece) or our heads again. we have been givin just about every story their is for excuse y they have not been shipped, from "the paint won't dry", to "i've been so busy". Every time we call, its ( it will be in the mail by the end of the month (like 5-6 times). So the bottom line is,... that TENN. EXTREME stole 550.00 dollars from us. So hopefully Matt, the owner of TENN. EXTREME will read this and make good on his part and send us back our money, and at that point i will not post any more about this,

Why don't you file a consumer complaint with Tenn. Attorney General's office?

Also they state they are certified, found out if that is true and by whom and file a complaint with them too.

Actually, 3 months seems a bit short to have a mount completed. Most taxidermists I know have a 6 to 8 month completion time. Some of the better ones could take up to a year to finish a good quality mount. Another thing is that they might be using some dry preservative instead of tanning or using a custom tannery. Dry preservatives could cause some serious issues down the road.....ie...falling apart.

You should always ask a taxidrmist if they use a dry preservative. Steer clear if they do. If they tell you they tan the hide or use a custom tannery, they are using a much better method of preserving the hide to provide you with a higher quality mount.

It all sounds a bit fishy to me.

Still running them down huh disturbed. I just spoke to Matt tonight. I just received my mount from 16 months ago from him.Looks great. He said your mount is ready and waiting but you wont contact him, return emails, etc. He said "jeff" was supposed to have contacted you about getting your mounts.

Also...You left out alot of the details about the hunt...discounted prices,free lodging, cost of mounts cut in half, etc, etc.

Matt's email is mbchoate_2000@yahoo.com.
