Default Wild turkey feathers

After reading the goose biot thread, I needed to find out what they were.

Well I have bags of wild turkey wing feathers I use for fletching arrows (yes I have to many hobbies) and only a small portion is usable for fletching, which means I have about 10 life times supply of these things.

Any one interested in some? All I ask in return is send me something cool back, doesn't have to be fly fishing related and you don't even have to tell me what it is.

I have done this before, it was fun, and getting the interesting little things back in the mail always made the day just a little better.

I'm game. I've done things similar in the past. Swap boxes are always fun.

I could use some fletching. My temperature controlled storage unit wasn't. My rubber fletching literraly turned to dust when I touched them. This sucks as they are nice aluminium hunting arrows, and frankly I trust metal over carbon for hogs. Old school I know, but at least I'm not still shooting glass. But if you want to sell me some feathers for fletching along with instructions, as I've never done it myself, or trade for pretty much any dead beast you care to name PM me. I mean hell, you want a grab bag? You might find yourself the proud new owner of some skunk taill or chinchilla hair. ROFL.
