The pose in that picture in your avatar would make a great mount.

My brother is doing mine, just a regular plaque fan in the rear, beard in the front with a photo in the center. He does a great job and is doing it for free since it was my first bird.
I came across this mount http://www.markricker.com/ which I thought was pretty nice though.

I looked http://www.markricker.com and I really like the turkey displays they have, it is exactly what I want to do know that I have the legs, beard and tail feathers from a bird I just shot last Sunday.  I have 2 turkey legs with 1 1/4" & 1 5/16" spurs in the freezer right now that I cut off at the knees. 
 
Does anybody know how to preserve the legs?

Those are all awsome ideas! My benchmark for full mount is a 20 lbs. I shot one close to that last year, but right now just sticking to tail and fan mounts. If my son shoots one bigger than mine, we promised him a full body mount. I will never be so happy to see a jake as I will this w/e!

It will have a color version of my logo in the oval.
