Prois Tips! FIELD DRESSING YOUR TURKEY…THE DOWN AND DIRTY!

Before you begin field dressing your gobbler, you need to make a decision. Do you want the bird to grace your dining room table, or the wall of your den? Either way, proper field care is important for birds that will be served as a main course, as well as for those to be mounted. If you intend on eating the bird, follow these field-dressing instructions to ensure the finest tasting turkey possible. Please consult your taxidermist should you wish to mount your bird.

First, remove the beard by cutting if off close to the point where it attaches to the breast. Take care not to cut the butt or end of the beard as doing so may cause the individual “hairs” to fall out.

Make a small incision at the tip of the breastbone with a sharp knife.
Carefully peel the skin and feathers away from the breast, legs, thighs and back.

Remove the legs at the knee joint by cutting the tendon and bending the joint until it snaps (some additional cutting may be required).

Severing the head at the neck removes both the cape and the head.

Next, remove the entrails by making a small cut in the thin tissue between the vent (anus) and the point of the breastbone. Make sure to remove the lungs (pink, spongy material) located on either side of the backbone high in the chest.

Wipe the cavity clean with paper towel, and remove any feathers that remain on the carcass.
Voila!

Prois staffer, Rebecca Francis, gives us an update after her lion hunt with Sun C Outfitters! “After five unsuccessful mountain lion hunts, I finally got my lion on my sixth trip out. Clint, Mclain, and Hunter Mclain Mecham with Sun C Outfitters and Lee Bybee worked so hard to make this come together. They are incredible houndsmen and it was so fun to see their dogs work so hard! We saved some of Utah’s deer and elk, and enjoyed some lion backstrap for dinner!” ‪#‎proiswasthere‬
