Before & Afters
« on: February 11, 2016, 02:56:53 PM »
I thought it might be fun to see some before and after shots from members. Here is my 2014 13" bearded turkey (with my grandson in the picture) and the mount of the same bird.

Yari, I hope you mounted at least that 12 1/2, both of those are dandy birds.

yep. full strut. I don't think the taxidermist did a good job though. the head doesn't look right. I should have stuck to my go to guy,but this guy had some really nice work at the deer classic. live and learn
