Turkey Mount

With a little help from my friends I was able to put together this fan mount of one of my Kansas Rio Grande turkeys.  I scraped the meaty part of the fan clean, covered it in Borax, and then pinned the fan to let it dry in its open position.  I took my shotgun shells from the hunt and cut off the hull, punched out the primer and glued the beard in.  Then I attached a leather string to the brass which held the spurs and a couple of beads.  After a week of drying, I used Jimmy's home made fan mount to hold the fan and threw the leather string over the center piece.  I thought it came out quite nice and is a great way to commemorate the hunt and the turkey without doing a full stuffer.
