Color-Phase Jake

This is a color-phase jake I just finished. Still a pretty bird even though it's a jake and all of his feathers aren't fully developed and his tail feather ends are pretty ratty. He was shot somewhere by Brookeville. No farms or tame turkeys around where he was shot, so I'm guessing it's just a wild, color-phase bird.

Jeff,

Awesome job on the head coloration. Perfect color for a gobbler doing what it is doing in the pose.

Bending the wing tips up shows a true respect for detail as well.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Thanks for noticing! Most people wouldn't or couldn't find the little details like that.

Re: Color-Phase Jake

Awesome job Jeff, Reminds me why I drive over 2hrs up to your shop when I need something done. That is a unique bird and I am sure the owner will be pleased.
