I was drying my tail/beard in a shed and the mice got to the meat...the beard is loose now not so much a prob as epoxy will put it back together, but they ate the bottom of some of the quills, will this be a problem? I can use the epoxy to keep the shape, I just wonder if it will fall apart with the bottom of some of the quills gone.

If you can lay the fan out with the front side of the feathers facing down and be satisfied that all is in the right position , glue or epoxy some thin cardboard or similar material to the back side of the quills to help hold its shape and keep them from sagging.
 
 Da'Gum mouse! My first fall jake , which was my first turkey by the way , a mouse ran off with the beard . I tore the garage apart looking for it . I wanted that first beard , and still do . My wife says ''Don't kill it ,,,take it out in the yard and let it go '' .  So I do ,,,,,,,but they just sit there. What else could they do ?  After being WACKED with the hoe.

Hey, ncturkey --

Some nice displays there. Tell me about the decoy you have on the left -- the one that looks like it's lying on its side.

Thanks.
