    I took in a turkey that has a broken leg. It had a pellet go through the leg about a 1/2 inch above the spur. I can repair the hole and and wiring the leg isnt an issue. But should I be concerned w/ the marrow and oils from the bone seeping out? I will be injecting the feet and leg w/ Masters Blend.

    I could be wrong, but i would suggest that you run a wire down the center of th bone to force any marrow out before you mount. Should solve the problem.

    I would drill a hole in the other end and blow the marrow out with the air hose. Then during the washing process try to force some water through there as well.

    if your not getting the morrow out of your turkey legs you may be asking for future problems, i have a drill bit the size of my leg wire that i run down the center of turkey legs and thru the foot pad for attachment and that bit pulls all the morrow out of them, as for the whole, i would simply use sculpt all to redo the affected area and airbrush to match.
