The only fan I have on the wall is from my first public land gobbler. I have all my beards just pinned on a cork board in my garage. I probably won't do another fan unless my daughter takes one, or my hunt was extra special/memorable for some reason.

I took a bunch of turkey fans to a local antler auction (along with a bunch of sheds) a couple years back and sold them. Don't remember what I got for them, except for free space back in the house. :lol:

The antler auction is coming up in March and I'll probably make another run up there.

Good luck! It ain’t deer hunting, but, I suppose nothing really is? It’s fun when they respond and come working in like they’re supposed to.


I inherited this mount, it was my grandpa’s first monster gobbler. This is in my son’s room, and my daughter is jealous; would like to get something similar made this year so she can get one too.

Stack them up to save space.

I seen that style of stacking fans just by accident one day while online. Here’s a link it but it’s on Pintrest. I do not have an account to look at it but maybe it will get you started on how to mount the fans like that.

Fans i save for decoy use, I have a few fans mounted in my man cave to offset the deer mounts and those turkey fans are the special ones (first longbeard, double with a best friend, etc). Then I have a piece of thin barnwood where i take the spurs and tie them up with paracord, then send a nail thru the paracord and the beard to a piece of barnwood. It nice to have a stack of beards and spurs on a board and is definitely a non hunter conversation piece.

Turkey fans don't mean much to me anymore. Unlike antlers, they're pretty much all the same. I thought about making some crafts with the feathers in the future. I think it would be reallly cool to make a war bonnett out of turkey feathers.

the Only keepsake I have is spurs. I cut them off with a hacksaw and run a string through them to display all the spurs in one spot.
