I could use some advice. I am wanting to see if it's crazy for me to be upset or if I should work towards another solution.
I killed a good mountain lion in January 2016. Looked around and talked to a few people and settled on a taxidermist in Utah. Sent the lion and 25% in February 2016.
Met with him in June (and had 50% down at that point) and the agreement then was that he would get it done Jan/Feb this year. Kept sending payments and paid in full last December.
I have kept in touch and it's kept getting pushed back and backs and back further.
When we met last year, he told me he doesn't like to do full size mounts in the fall because of deer and elk season, so the Jan/Feb timeframe seemed reasonable. At that time he was waiting on the lion to come back from the tannery.
It's August, and we had a conversation about a month ago that he would have mine done and send me pics of the form prior to completion, all before he left on an extended hunt... Today.
No word yet. No lion. And he has all of my money.
I have proof of everything. Bank documents of the checks being cashed, delays, etc.
What do I do? I have seen him post a lot of stuff of work he has completed. I am pretty sure a lot of it has been killed after my lion. Pretty frustrated at this point.
