Wax a turkey. What!
When we called our good turkey hunting buddy and asked him if he wouldn't mind taking some of our duck wax on his next turkey hunting trip, we didn't expect "no" to be the answer. He said, "y'all are coming with me." How could we say no to that. So we packed up our equipment and got busy. He bagged a big "Eastern," and we got ready to wax it. As far as we knew, no one had ever tried it. We prepped it just like a duck, although we removed the beard and tail feathers first. With the wax melted, we dunked the old gobbler a few times and then dropped in the cooling trough. We're not exaggerating when we say, "It may wax easier than ducks and geese." We did have to hold the skin down with one hand while we pulled the feathers because it felt like the skin may tear, but other than that, it was easy. After removing the feathers, we cut off the head, sliced a hole at the bottom to remove the guts, and that was it. Check it out.
