    I found this rather ridiculous lamp and had to share it with you. I'm definitely not a hunter but I guess you could call it odd folk art. The lamp has a taxidermy turkey foot and a bullet cartridge that I assume bagged the turkey. They are mounted on a wooden round base. Stapled on the bottom is a green hunting tag for a turkey dated 2004 in Galen, New York with hunter's name and info.
    Amazingly, the lamp works!
