STOP-ROT ON WILD TURKEY AND OTHER BIRDS with Dan Jennings.  "Until I started using STOP-ROT, I never realized how quickly wild turkies were decomposing on me before I could get them mounted.  STOP-ROT helps to produce a really clean bird with a lot of sheen, and since I've been using STOP-ROT on turkey legs and feet, I haven't had the first one with that funky turkey foot odor."
