I shot this turkey on the first day. I skinned it, spread it out and poured borox on it to dry. I liked how it turned out.
Thank you for looking!

Looks good. I didn't have any barn wood so I made my own. Put a wire wheel on a grinder and ground out the soft grain. Burnt the wood with a torch and used a little bit of red stain at the top.

Love the caped turkeys. I do all mine that way and think it looks so much nicer. Good job!

Thank you muzzy. That's what I thought, but being my 1st I wasn't 100% sure. It's not like a deer's skull cap. Or plucking a cockbirds tail feather. And my wife surely wouldn't be happy if my trophy was a rotting, stinking, piece of meat hanging on the wall.
