As I'm new to taxidermy I'm constantly trying to learn as much as I can. I used Frank Newmyers video on mounting a strutting turkey to begin my education of this sort. In his video he mentioned that he once removed the feathers from a live gobbler in order to see the shape of the body while strutting. This would also give one the opportunity to get a good look at how the feathers track while strutting. So has anyone ever saw a photo or have any of a strutting gobbler without or with minimal feathers (while molting)? I've been through the reference photos and don't see anything of the sort.
