    Having bagged 60 plus turkeys over the years I have a large cache of beards and spurs. Any ideas? Any artists out there that make hatbands or something else?

      i do know a cool way to mount the fan and the beard. i'm sure you could be creative and fit the feet in there somehow. it's just a halfcircle on the top, where you mount the fan. and beneath that is a piece of wood, skinnier, that you mount the beard. i'll look up a picture of one for you. but i'm sure you already know what i'm talking about. ----- http://www.wataxidermist.com/_Turkey-Fan-Beard.jpg

        What about contacting like Bass Pro, Cabels, or one of them they always are running ads to buy "trophys" ?

          An old friend down south simply strung his large collection on a long leather string and hung it across one wall of his gun room. It looked sort of like a three dimentional wall border. I wonder what happened to them after he passed away as I am sure his wife could have cared less and he had no children that I knew of.

            ishawooa, that sounds really cool, Del, for scouts we have an OA ceremony and they have head band things with feathers that go around the head and then down the back. I'm sure if you got creative, you could do something like that or in a way that you want.

              I made a necklace that's just spurs strung around a thin leather strip. Looks pretty cool, scary even.

                Del,

                I have made spur necklesses and hat bands by stringing them on leather strips with beads spaced in between. I cape birds for display also. My wife and I have also made wreaths from assorted feathers and a florist friend makes up dry arrangements with turkey feathers.

                  What about center-pieces for Thanksgiving Dinner, if you've got some sheds too that would look great, and you could make a dollar or two also.

                      Body cam footage shows Floyd wasn't murdered. The cop kneeling on his neck might have been negligent, but his actions did not kill Floyd.
