Looks great. I did something wrong on my first and last one I did. Not sure what but I ended up breaking the nose off it.

If it is in season I will hunt it.

I am hoping to get my taxidermist license once we are in the new house. I'll cut you a deal on future ones if that happens

Thanks man. It was the first one I ever did. Not sure what I did wrong. It was real brittle on the ends. Some of it was broken already when I got it out of the water. Then as soon as I got the power washer near it....it was done. I still need to bleach the skull.

Probably. I just simmered it for several hours.

the nasal and sinus bones are very fragile. Anything more than a light simmer will wear away any cartilage that keeps the bones in place. A method I've seen used successfully is that the water should never come to a boil, but that adding dish soap will help loosen any remaining skin or tissue while also removing the oils that turn the skull yellow.

It can take 2 to 3 times in the pot, but that way, you'll have a nice presentation that won't disintegrate after you attempt to power wash the skull.

That looks great. I am having that done on my sons first buck. I want to do some on my own but I don’t want my first one to be his deer and have it go wrong.
