    My cousin in CA took 2 blacktails in at the same time for him and his grandpa once and they got the capes switched too (I think it was west coast taxidermy in san bruno). Kinda makes ya wonder how many get switched and no one notices...... I really like my taxi and the work he does and I have no intention of switching. Im just a bit irritated with him at the moment.

    It's funny. I didn't even notice for a couple months. I had a friend over and we were looking at the photo and the mount at the same time. That was when I noticed somthing wasn't right. I looked at pic of my dads mount and his field photo then I realized what happend. The one good thing is that I can keep calling my dad a thief every time I'm at his house.

    My moms and grandpas bull elk capes were switched also. But the funny thing is, they look better than if they were correct LOL. But one thing is, we get the mount once he passes away. So we can have the cape Hahahahahahaha.

    I noticed the difference. Because when you have a 5 year old bull cape and a 10 year old one, its pretty easy to tell. The old bull had several scars.

    Least you can give your dad a bad time about it LOL! My taxi got a little worried when he was waiting for my antelope horns to set up. He was standing there holding them and he said "your sure there right now....cuz Im relying on you right now". I assured him I knew my antelope and they were right and told him the other guy should pay $25 of my mount for getting the right horns on his antelope. lol

    I wish old hunter was still around. Would be interesting to see what he had to say on that "Wyoming a crock" thread! lol

    I wouldn't worry about it too much. It sounds like you got the correct horns now so it should be all good. When I found the taxi I was talking about I didn't do much research on him. Come to find out he has a pretty bad reputation for being a flake. Sometimes I would call him anywhere from 6-12 times and not hear back from him for a month or more. The guy does really good work and is a hell of a nice guy but he is a horrible buisnessman.
