Hi all, Erin just got her first turkey and she wants to get the tail feathers done in a nice mount.  Anybody done this before, or knows a good taxidermist?  How much should this run if I was to have someone do it?  The time factor is an issue, it would be much easier for me to just pay for it to be done then mess with it myself...thanks for your time and input...
