Congrats, that not just a bw bird. That's a solid bird. Now do a fan mount, pluck the beard, clean the spurs, save the shell you shot it with.

Thanks, I already ordered my mount and I have the fan and beard drying in the garage right now.

I also pulled the spurs off. My wife wants to make some earrings with them.

Just make sure you get the tail bone cut out all the way. Let it sit a long while.

This video is interesting, at about 3:45 he talks about using Bondo to set the tail fan so you don't have to wait to dry it out.

Congratulations on your first gobbler! That's an outstanding bird. I clean the fan as best I can, spread it and thumb tack it to a piece of cardboard, shake a little salt or borax on it and lat it flat on top of a dresser or something in the house. It'll dry in a week or so and there's no smell. Drying inside works better cause there's no humidity (or critters).

Thanks everyone. I've been riding high all day. I'm definitely hooked.

It's weird how I was so much more excited for my first turkey than my first deer, not sure why but I was jacked up after I smoked him.

Probably because you worked harder for the bird.
