Very nice, neat board
We have started cutting the spurs off with about an inch of the leg bone still attached. Makes for a nifty way to hang them.

Keep it out of your house.

Moth heaven. Had to throw away all my turkey stuff because the moths were everywhere


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

As far as the moths, get the moth balls that come in small packets and you can pin or staple them up under the cape and it will help. I tuck them in the wings of all my duck mounts.
