    vacuum seal them..We did 28 turkeys last year. You can buy the bags big enough to do it:) If you don't have a sealer you can still buy the bags and use a straw-suck all the air out of bag while someone else is holding bag tight and sealing it with twist ties??

    A BIG freezer? [​IMG] seriously thou, I purchased my shrink wrap bags from Cornerstone farm. They run about a dollar each and you just dip the bagged bird in hot water so bag shrinks they stick em in freezer camp.
