    Welcome to Cheftalk - what kind of turtle are we talking about here?  You can place the turtle(s) in a tub with water and corn meal and change it out over a couple of days to clean it out, or dispatch it and go right to work.  Here is a good article on the second method that also work after the first.  Turtle meat is absolutely delicious and I've caught and cooked turtle with I was younger.  I might give it a whirl again sometime.  Hey it's work, but anything you harvest for food is worth the effort.
