I am sure the answer to all this is to just buy the tuffheads but I have not learned my lesson yet. It takes me forever to get concords sharp on a 12 inch bastard file. I was hoping I could lightly make a pass or two on the grinder and them finish them with the KME on wet dry sand paper.
As far as the turkeys go I packed in west of the lake a couple years ago and saw a bird but didnt hear any gobbles. There is an outfitter on the east side of the lake who has friends/clients come up and shoot five or six a spring. I am sure he feeds them all winter. I heard that from a pretty reliable source who thought it would be a cool story to share with me. He is one of those really cool new Durango people who is having his great western adventure and needs everyone to know about it. 😈 Anyway I am not sure what I will do with these heads.
Take care and let me know if you want to do a turkey hunt this spring.
