Smile ISO Dead Turkeys

Does anyone have a turkey hunt planned in the next few weeks that would be willing to ship your dead turkey to me? Looking to practice my turkey taxidermy work and need birds. I'll gladly pay & pay for shipping!

Why don't you go get a turkey license and kill one. Most people eat their turkeys. You may even be able to purchase a skin off a taxidermy website they sell all kinds of things.

What about some road kill?
Maybe if it is not to messed up, and you found it soon enough.
not sure where you live, but there is always raccoons, armadillos are deer getting hit by cars.

While I appreciate the suggestion, Iím looking to actually complete the entire process... from skinning to completion. I do have a hunting license and actually killed my limit of Easterns in Kentucky and Merriams in South Dakota this year. I wasnít sure I would be able to take this taxidermy class, therefore ate the birds I killed instead of saving them. Thanks for the input though.

Iím just looking to perfect Turkey at this time, and around us. they just donít end up dead on the road... and if they do, they are always pretty mangled. 😏

Good luck with your taxi class turkeys are alot of work and fun if alot of work is considered fun to you lol
I used to give my heads and occassionally a body to a buddy here but he retired and nobody close does them now. I always feel its a shame to waste all those beautiful feathers but I don't fly fish and have enough mounts now ! Good luck finding one like you I already processed my 7 birds from this season so no help here. Maybe check with some of the turkey outfitters or taxi near you and see if they have anything in the freezer that a client didn't take or pick up.
