spoke to a taxidermist yesterday about this he said to boil for ten or 15 minutes at a time and remove all the meat and brains you could b4 boiling said to drill a hole into brain cavity and remove all you could guess I will do some boiling soon myself also he said to pay special attention to nose area very easy to crack and brake here

I burried mine in the ground with the horns sticking out, covered them with a bucket and they are coming clean. the worms, etc eats rest off. heard to use peroxide after that to get em white. could boil the skull in an ajax water bath to get em white. watch out not to get on rack as it will bleach it too. shouldn't smell too bad with just bare skull though.

taxidermydude told me this, and it works, but not in the time frame you have.

cut the head off right at the base of the skull. skin it out if you wish, if not, its ok too. put the skull in a 5 gal bucket of water, where the head but not too much of the horns are submerged. leave for a couple of months, a considerable distance from the house. when you take them out they should be clean as a pin. i did one this year like that, and it worked great. one round of boiling with peroxide to whiten, or use the poor boy method i chose, white kiwi shoe polish, the liquid bottle with the sponge on top:thumb: BG12
