If anyone has a pheasant tail fan that needs a new home --- I'm your guy. I'm in desperate need of a fanned out tail as in a "rising Pheasant" to study and copy when engraving these birds. We have a severe shortage of pheasant down here or they are real good at hiding ---- I've never seen a live one except in a childrens zoo. Thanks in advance, Ken

Ken:
I will save one tomorrow, pin it up and let it dry. I can't recall how long they take to dry out but I would think I can have it to you within 2 weeks. Will that work?

If you need one in a hurry fly tying shops usually carry them for sale. My recollection is they clip you pretty good for them.

Make sure he gets one from a mature wild rooster, not some short assed pen raised bird. It makes a huge difference in proportions.

Ken, I am at my home in Canada for the holiday. Arrived today. I just got back from that trip to S. Dakota you and I discussed. Had a wonderful low key farm family time. I brought back several tail feather sections but they are in San Diego and I won't be back till after next weekend. It you are not overloaded with them by then I will send you one the next day. If you need one sooner and no one offers one right up, there is someone staying at my house who can send it.
The little Fox 20 with the 26 inch barrels that I bought at that funky auction last year was amazing. Acted like a magic wand. Carried like a feather and shot unconsciously. Almost never missed. If I can figure out how to post pictures I will do so with some stories.
Hope all is well with you. Craig

Im not sure what you are talking about. What is a tail feather section or fan? How do you remove it from the bird?

Jake, glad you took some time off --- you needed a break anyway. Thanks also for your offer but Chicago has offered to send me one. I'll be inlaying a few pheasant in gold for Mr. Baron 23 along with some other critters & the tail will be ready in time. Have a ball while you are away. Ken

Ken:
Per Jerry's comment it will be a pen raised bird and the mature wild roosters generally do have much longer tails. I will send along anyway and you can make the call.
