|Good job Dallan!! I'm still waiting for my first one, the darn birds are in my yard all the time, I think the season starts on the 15th....I better find out...tell us how you're going to prepare it. |
Did your Boy save the tail feather and make a fan?
Just spread the feathers out and pin on Cardboard. Then scrap all the fat off of tail and salt it good. Make you a board to mount on.
He definitely looks like he has turkey in his eye for next year. LOL
|I'm with JEH7mmmag on this Dallan.....WOW...I have never seen anything like that...ever. That is one magnificent looking wall piece mate.|
When you skin the bird, how do you stop the feathers from dropping out mate? What does the borax do? I've tanned up 'roo hides and deer hides, but can't even begin to get my head around tanning a bird skin complete with feathers.
|Good luck mate. If your "bird" comes out even half as good as this one it will be awesome.|
