These were Lenawee co. birds, lots of gobbling in the woods this morning. I took them to the taxidermy to have the fans and beards mounted. my son wanted a full body mount of his. I told him he would have to mow alot of yard this summer to pay for it, he did not want any part of that. his weighted 21.5 and mine was 25 even. just waiting on the wife to get home from work to down load pic.

congrats. and btw, it is really easy to do the fan and bear yourself. all you have to do is get some foam poaster board, fan out the fan and keep it in place with pins and put salt on the meet., the beard, just put salt on
