    So last week I went down to my taxidermist and picked up my full turkey mount. I thought he did a great job on it and it will be a nice addition to my basement living room. Thought I would share a couple pictures!

    You got that right. They are one of the few creatures that I describe as ugly and pretty all at the same time!

    Early in. I wondered the same thing. I actually have it basically closed off so I am thinking it should be ok.

    Heart stopper I see that you aren't too far from me. I live outside of Le Roy IL. I always take my animals to Droptine Taxidermy in McLean IL. Dave does fantastic work and I have had him do several animals over the years. Prices are very competitive too
