Mountain Mike's Reproductions Beard Master Turkey Kit
Acceptable Turkey Mount Kit
I bought 2 of these. I was skeptical at 1st glance because they were plastic and small. I liked the fact that there were 3 places to mount beards since I had a Nebraska Merriam with 5 total beards. I also liked the ability to place the feet with spurs under the tail fan since I had a Nebraska Rio with 1 5/8" spurs I wanted to show off. The plastic does not look bad when the mount is complete. I would like to have had longer screws to use on the feet. I would also like to have a flat surface behind the fan instead of a offset surface. If I use another one of these kits I will place something behind the tail fan and I will cut the feet off further down the leg to get away from the knuckle area of the knee joint.

I really liked this mount but installed the feet into the outside beard mounts. I only had the one beard and thought it looked better this way.

you get what you pay for
honestly it looks good when done. the problem i had with it is none of the parts taken from the turkey would fit in the given spaces. I had to take a real shotgun shell and replace the plastic shells, I also had to replace the screw for the legs and fan with better ones, they strip easily and are a little to thin to hold well. other than that it looks good for complete construction out of plastic.

The tom my son shot during the junior season looks great on the wall. The mount kit could of been a little bit wider. Other than that, the kit was perfect. Hopefully, I'll be buying another one before the end of this season.
