Plant Hunting Military camouflage Plant community Tree


It was an awesome hunt this morning. We had 4 strutters come in and she zipped the first one that gave her a clear shot. 10 1/2” beard 1” spurs. The only downfall was that when i chased after to grab him he turned and i grabbed his fan unintentionally and pulled out the feathers. So that was a big fat bummer. So if anyone has an idea how i can do a fan mount with the 19 feathers we retrieved. Please let me know!!! Hindsight being 20/20 i shouldn’t have chased after him. She smoked him hard and would have died pretty quick

Funny guy!!! she was a little more than disappointed when i got back to her with the bird…
But she understood
It’s going to be tough to make a turkey fan from those feathers. Not only do you have the 19 feathers you pulled out but all the feathers in front of them. The shorter feathers in front hide the quill from the tail feathers.

#1 That is friggin awesome! Huge congratulations to your wife B! I know how hard you were working getting her on her 1st bird so kudos to you both man.
#2 Now about that plucked up retrieval you pulled off... From what you've told me about her I gotta ask, did she give you a black eye, or kick you in the nuts when you showed back up with the bird??? 🤭

I can tell you wrapped the bird in bacon. But tell me more because it looks like something I would eat ?

marinade in oil,vinegar, Worcestershire, brown sugar, salt and pepper and brushed it with a Carolina BBQ sauce while on the grill!! I think you’d like it!
