Fan & Beard Preparation
« on: April 19, 2013, 12:57:32 PM »
Now that I finally got a bird, I have put the tail (base) and beard in Borax for now. What's the best way to prepare these for mounting?

I can't help ya Bearclaw. I only mount then in a roasting pan or deep fryer.  ##$%#111 I'm sure someone will be able to help with mounting instructions. In the mean time if'n ya need help with the roasting I'm your guy! --099-780

Congrats on getting the bird.

I spread mine out on cardboard and pit the fan open. Then I pour a ton of salt and borax on it

Bearclaw, I have never done one yet, but just youtube "How to make a turkey fan" and its show it several ways how to do it. Looks easy enough to do and will do my sons and/or mine if we get lucky this year. Or next year.
