drum sticks or no drum sticks on a Turkey

Submitted by Coacj on 4/25/01. ( )

I will be mounting my second turkey. I have noticed that there are two types of manikins ones with drumsticks and those without.

The first turkey I mounted was with the original leg bones. What do I do differently for the manikine with drumbsticks? Also By running a wire up the bones and wrapping it down against the bone I got a secure tie down on the base, it looks like it would not be as stable without this. So If I get a manikin with drumsticks how do I get a secure attachment to the base?

So which would you suggest, the manikins with drumsticks or those without?

Any information would be appreciative.

If your using Buckeyes, Gary has a system that lets you run a threaded rod right up the bone. You need to drill a 1/8" hole threw the bone and clean out the marrow. Insert the rod and it will attack to the drumstick. Gary also shows you how to use his maninkins.
