    Another trick for the spurs is after you cut them off and remove the hide over the bone is to clear out the bone marrow with a Q tip then put about a 1 inch of Javex in a butter container place the spurs in the javelin keeping just in bone in the bleach.Give it about a week and the bone will be very white and the spur looks sharp.Put a piece of 1stand of copper put your spurs on the copper then solder it together then hang it on a hook on the fan mount along with the the cut off shotgun shell looks sharp.

    I do the Spurs like Rick, and just thread them on a bootlace. I keep the shell, pick out the primer and make a hanging loop, then roll up my tag and put it in the shell casing, and tuck the borax dried end of the beard in the open end of the casing, and hang them up with the fan mount. I’ll try to grab a pick and post it up.

    Here is a pic of my first tom's fan, and the beards and spurs from the rest since.[IMG][/IMG]
    Every once in a while I threaten my wife or daughter that I am going to wear the necklace out with them!

    Im lucky to live in a good turkey area, and I love the spring season.
    You always end up with more beards than spurs.....like my recent tom - I think I've had goosebumps bigger than those spurs!

    Make sure to remove the oil glands at the base of the tail when cleaning up all the fat and meat from it.
    I use course salt instead of borax.
    And I use a clothes hanger with the clips on each side to hold the tail spread open. Then I can hang it to dry.
    Wish I remembered how to post pictures. Lol
