I live in a area full of turkeys and I find them all over. Can I use them even if I don't cure them?

Store them in moth balls or other repellent, otherwise you may infect all your stash. I learned the hard way. Wild birds carry critters.

That sucks. Thanks for the tips, I should be able to tie some nice flys with the feathers around here.

Use a specific type of moth balls. Made with paradichlorobenzene...not naphthalene. The para stuff kills critters...the napth does not!!
You can also use pieces of "Hot Shot" no pest strips to kill the little buggers as well.
Put everything into a sealed Tupperware type container for 30 days.
