Tree Killer, I have some feathers for you. My son killed two jakes this morning, and I should have a few more soon. Would you please PM me some shipping info.

Still need feathers?  I'd love to get one of those wingbone calls.  I'll even include a jar of home made sea salt.   ;)  I think I lost two or three off one wing though.

The wings are starting to roll in from folks...so if anybody has wings or even just primary feathers, get ahold of me.

Just wanted to let folks know that I'll be gone bear and turkey hunting for the next 10 days.  I've been contacted by some members who have sent wings, or have wings they plan on sending me...thanks! 

For anybody that have wings or kill a bird in the next week or so, just put them in a garbage bag and freeze them.  Send me a PM and I'll reply when I get back home from hunting.

I'll start building the wingbone calls at the end of this month, already have quite afew cleaned and bleached out.

Thanks guys!     :tup:

To the top for the upcoming 2016 turkey hunt.  Got some really great primaries last spring in exchange for personalized wingbone calls from this group.   :tup:

Is there a certain way to take care of the wings before you ship them and what is the best way to package them. We usually get half a dozen birds if things go right

emac...I usually tell folks to put them in a plastic garbage sack and freeze ASAP, then box them up to mail on a Monday if possible so they arrive before the weekend.  Some guys prefer to bone out the wings and snip off the primaries...but still freeze the bones in a zip lock bag.  The bones and feathers make a smaller package then the whole wings.  As soon as I get them I bone them out, clean up, cut them down to shape and boil the bones. 

Some guys will rinse blood off the feathers before it dries, but I can usually deal with it without too much effort.

I'll even sweeten the pot.  Send the entire wings and I'll build you a personalized wingbone yelper in exchange.

Ok thank you. My hunting buddy is a taxidermist so I am sure he knows what to do with them also. We are taking his brothers out for the youth season coming up I will let ya know if we get any.

I seriously haven't forgotten about you and still have all the feathers and wing bones for you. I'll get the feathers in the mail tomorrow and wing bones next Monday. About ready to start another round this year and should have a bunch more. :tup:
