Grouse tail fans

Yep, they look nice.

Just clean them real well and dust them liberally with Borax...not salt.

Borax is a dessicant and it adds a little bug proofing.

Salt will attract moisture every time the humidity is high, and it doesn't add any protection against bugs like dermestid beetles.

If you want to preserve your turkey and grouse tails get some of the "dry tan" preservative stuff from Dan Chase taxidermy supply. It's mostly mulled Borax, but it's got some kind of an insecticide added and you don't have to worry about the bugs eating up your stuff.

A 5# bag is cheap, and it'll last a lifetime.
