"Turkey Foot Cane"

My son-in-law and his father are avid turkey hunters, and John came up with this idea as a birthday gift for his dad. When enlarged to a size usable for a cane handle, it almost looks like a dragon foot or something. The scaling and colors were interesting to me and John approved of the accuracy of the carving and painting. I attached it to a bark-on stick that has some interesting colors and textures. The carving is basswood and I have no clue what the stick might be! It stands 41 1/2” tall. Thanks for looking!

Funny, ugly and very nice woodcarving. I like the project from the woodcarving aspect but I wouldn’t like to hold it as a walking stick. Very good job.

Very cool and a little creepy.
I don’t mind shooting or eating turkeys but I don’t think I want to hold hands with one.
