Lots of guys saying "you get what you pay for" on here.  Peyser up until 5 or so years ago was the best of the best.  He took a long time but his work was top notch.  He did work for the best hunters and businesses in the world.  Cabalas used him and other top name outfits.  He mounted 4 bull elk we took in Dayton in 2006 and did a great job.  He took a long time though.  I think something went wrong in his personal life and or he got over extended.  Sad to see.  What he has done is wrong and criminal in my mind.  If I had stuff there (especially trophy antlers) for years with no response, I would be on his doorstep like some have mentioned.  You can loose a deposit and a cape, but trophy antlers need to be returned.  I like what somebody else said, don't leave antlers with the taxi until he is ready to actually do the work after the cape and forms are ready.  But its like life, ya never know when someone is going to go under.  Even the best can go under if not managing business properly.

You all probably better not be watching Facebook today.   Some of you will be really angry.

I don't think it's possible for any taxi to realize the anxiety someone can have of not knowing.  Wondering if to be patient/understanding or go nuclear. 

Makes me sick thinking about it and brings back bad memories....

I suppose each to his own, but I donít think I would be posting pictures of my big bucks when I had so many people upset at me for keeping/losing their trophies.

Could the police get involved in any way to get deposits back or are the animals and deposits a lost cause ? 4 years have gone by?

I say start with talking to WDFW. Just went through a very similar situation. Got in contact with a WDFW officer and one visit to the guy's house, and now I have possession of my stuff again.

So this is possible?

Anyone have any updates with Peyser? Itís a principal thing at this point with me. Doubt Iíll ever get the deposit back (50%) but want some repercussions

Curious what the story is on the one you didn't recover.....

@Whtlhunter170  glad to hear you got two of the three. Any chance of getting the third or is it just a total loss?
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

 I'm sorry, I've seen and read this thread a few times and every time I get pissy so I just have to ask;
 At what point does a situation like this become larceny? This individual/company has possession of your property which there should be proof of in receipts and copies of the proof of down payments. There should be a consensus as to a reasonable amount of time for this company/individual to complete the jobs or return the items unfinished. After this time span has expired, law enforcement should get involved. Unless the items in question have been destroyed in a fire, stolen, taken in a bankruptcy situation, it should be a simple case to make. Any item that is not completed in the time frame that's considered reareasonable should be considered stolen. If this were the case, the company/individual would have incentive to complete, return or renegotiate new terms on the items.
 I'm sorry, people put in years of work in search of these trophies and once in their possession, they become cherished property. Someone completely ignoring this fact should be held responsible just as if they'd come into your house and taken the items. They've accepted the responsibility of caring for these items in their possession therefore should be held accountable as such.  Just my opinion

Small claims court is another option, you can sue for up to $10,000 and don't need an attorney.  It's very simplified compared with regular courts, you basically get in front of a judge and tell them your story and show them your proof.

You have to pay the court $50 plus the fee to get they guy served papers.  If you win, you can get that money back from the guy as well a your other deposits.

Collecting a judgement can be fun, but after 30 days you can go after paychecks, bank accounts, assets, etc and also collect on the costs it takes you to get the judgement amount.

If you have documentation that you think is pretty solid (including an original contract of some sort, deposit reciepts and the time/date/method you tried to reach him over the years), I would send a certified letter letting him know you have tried everything you could to get your stuff back and give him a week to get back before I went to court to recover my money.
