The Reptile Tools Turtle Processing Kit makes the job of cleaning and preparing snapping turtle quick and easy, from humanely dispatching it to correctly processing the meat. All the tools that are needed to get the job done are included, along with the “How to Prepare and Cook a Snapping Turtle” booklet, an extensive guide on processing the snapping turtle and how to store the meat. The booklet also includes some traditional recipes for turtle. The 49” Turtle Hook is designed to cleanly and effectively hook and control the turtle during capture. It is forged from high tensile rod and features a long, turned wood handle. The Turtle Thumper, a high tensile rod welded to a long shank with a turned wood handle, was designed as the perfect tool for clean and humane dispatch of the turtle. The last piece of the kit is the Turtle Opener Tool, which was specifically designed to assist in the removal of a snapping turtle’s shell. It has a steel cutting edge that has been welded onto a long steel handle with wooden overlays and is used with the included wooden mallet. The long handle combined with two specifically designed razor sharp chisel sections makes very quick work during the cleaning process. The Turtle Processing Kit was thoughtfully crafted and put together to make a troublesome task much, much easier.
