My Turkey Beard Collection was getting 'Bunched up' on a Single shelf so I stopped and got a Few Boards from a Old Wood shed that had fell that was well over 100 Years old the property owner told me and made me a simple Double Shelf and made it Big enough so If I ever get Lucky and kill another Gobbler I can add a beard in between each of these and Bunch them up again lol, I also cooked the Gobbler heads from this Season and did European mounts with 1 in a Cluck and 1 in a Gobbling Position. Turkey Heads are very very fragile and even though thier eyes look pea size as we see them, they are actually HUGE!!, I would say close to the size of a Gumball lol...I have always wanted to do this and Finally did and I like the results myself but I know this type of Decor isn't for everyone but everyone isn't strange like me lol. Also laying there with the call I had Fishing legend Hank Parker sign before I finished it is The 8 inch Beard my Trophy Bearded Hen had and I vowed to never shoot another 1 but That is a trophy to me also.
