If you’re fortunate enough to harvest a wild turkey, chances are a great story lies behind that day’s events, and you’ll likely want to preserve the memory.

Not everyone wants or can afford an expensive full body mount of their turkey harvest, but the fan and beard make great trophies — and they’re a simple DIY project for even the most novice sportsmen.

Josh called in this bird with Hunter’s Specialties’ H.S. Strut calls at Shuhart Creek Whitetails in Warshaw, Illinois. Shooting a Mossberg 930, he delivered a shot of Hornady Heavy Magnum Turkey and was field-dressing in no time.
