Default Putting a pheasant skin to work

Figured I'd start a new thread after reading some guys had some pheasant skins lying around.

Here's some links from Jack Gartside:

The Ringneck Pheasant

and Terry Helleckson:

Thanks for the articles. I have used the feathers for many things, but I got some new ideas from here

I forgot to mention in my previous post that the best part about experimenting with other feathers on the pheasant (besides just using te tail feathers) is that I now have a free source, a guy here at work likes to hunt for them and he brought be in a couple of pheasant skins this fall.

Some of my friends just got a bunch of pheasant. Does anything need to be done to preserve the skin?
I'll see if they saved any skins from the coyotes. If not I bet I can hook a bunch of us up later.

Larry,
Maybe you should see if he needs another hunting partner?

Does he hunt for other birds also? be good for you if you could get into some Huns, Quaill(sp), or Grouse.

About all you need to do is put them in a sealed plastic bag with some Borax and give it a good shake for a few moments, well maybe scrape the skin real well first.

Fysh

I believe he hunts on a relative's ranch (at least that is what he does for elk), maybe I will ask to be sure. I'll ask about the other types of birds also. As far as I know he just hunts of pheasant.

I don't own a shotgun (maybe I should think about that!). I used to have a defender (mid length barrel) when I lived in Alaska that I carried for bear protection, but I gave that away to my son.

Larry,
I've been thinking about joining one of the local Pheasant hunting ranches. With the cost of Chicken(and everything else for that matter)going up like it is, I would be saving $$ in the long run, getting skins to sell, having good corn/Grain fed birds(Steroid free also), and getting outside during the colder months.

I bought a new Benelli last year that has only gotten moderate use this year during Dove Season, so I may need to take it for a walk.
