Yeah, any of the smaller birds like that.  We don't have them critters around here.  The wife uses different feathers when she makes dream catchers every now and then.  Other than that, you can fan them out like a turkey and mount them. O0  They're pretty cool looking and not something that very many people have. O0
I wish I would have known about the feather deal, BC. I could have send ya a lot of feathers from road kill turkeys. You can use some turkey feathers?

Nah, I can get turkey feathers. :wink:  That is unless you can come up with some Osceola, Rio Grande, Merriam's, Gould's, or Ocellated turkey feathers. :wink:

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

Turkeys are just like Indians, they all look alike to me.  :wink: :roll: ;D I don't know what species we have here for sure, even given the excellent map you posted. It looks like we have two, Eastern and Gould's.
Is there much noticable difference between the two?

:D Even with the pictures they all look the same ...Cept the last one he's odd.
 Jen come on up you could fit right in.!

The main differences are in the feathers on the back and the tail.  Notice how "white" some are and others are kind of cream colored. O0
