    Has anyone heard from mudrush lately? I have sent a few emails but haven't heard back from him. Don't know if he is having email issues or if he is just really busy. He normally responds to email though...

    Rumor is that one of his competitors hung him upside down by his ankles in his shop. But don't worry, his new hired man will be in tomorrow, find him and cut him down.
    :tongueout:



















    I'm just bored and thought I'd add a little adventure into the ole 10 ring.

    I exchanged a few emails with him. But, that was about two weeks ago.

    mudrush posted that his new man didn't work out and did not start working for him.

    I don't know if he is more busy than usual, however he has always answered email pretty quickly (day or two). I haven't heard from him in two weeks.

    I'm sure he's around somewhere.... people have lives outside of this forum, believe it or not. LOL.... (i guess I say this every time I have to take a hiatus of my own... hehe)

    I was asking because I (a Swamp Fox customer) have been unable to get a hold of him through the normal channels. (Email, his website "contact us" page, etc.)

    Not expecting him to live on this forum...

    In other words, I was asking if anyone has been in contact with him lately as a customer and was able to get a hold of him.

    If you use the forum's "Search" feature, you can look him up by his username (mudrush) and see when his last post was.
    Here ya' go (did it for ya')

    It looks like he was last here around 10/31/11.

    I placed an order with him 3 weeks ago for several hundred dollars worth. Have not heard a word about my order other than "processed" and no response to e-mail.

    He hasn't posted here for 2 weeks after being pretty regular and has admitted to having struggles with his business.

    I'll give him another day to respond before I request a refund.

    Mike makes specific ammo in batches by type. He probably hasn't got to your batch yet. Mine took close to a month.but I knew his operating plan. read the web site.

    If you need stuff in a hurry, this may not be acceptable

    I have ordered from him in the past and am familiar with the latency. What is troubling is the non-repsonse to email. In the past he always responded to give an order update.

    My situation is a little unique and don't want to get into details. It is the lack of repsonse (over two weeks for me now) that is problematic.

    My intent on this thread was not to see where he is on this forum. I get the whole search thing... but I am not looking for him here. My question was for those currently doing business with him... and if you were in contact with him. I don't want to air any dirty laundry. Was just trying to figure out if there was something that happend that would explain the "disappearance". At this point I don't know if his email is down, he had a family emergency, etc. Just don't know.

    Sure hope he is ok. Hopefully went hunting with his ammo. :super grin:

    I just recently got my order, maybe three weeks ago. The stuff is hot.

    Im leaning towards the whole hunting trip thing...that is about all that can explain it. Any other situation and he would have his blackberry with him that he uses to answer emails...

    I never thought about hunting until you guys started mentioning it in this thread. (Which is really funny because I have been getting ready for deer season myself...) Makes sense. I hope that is the case.

    Gotta be tough running a business by yourself and have some sort of life outside the business.

    From what I've seen of him on this forum, I believe that he is a very honest individual. I understand that from your perspective, it can be kind of scarey waiting to see if you will be given a date for your backorder to be delivered or some bad news on your credit card.
    My suggestion is to have some faith in him and give it a little more time.
    Besides, have you checked with your credit card company to see if he ran a charge yet? Most companies don't charge until a backorder is sent out.
