I want to do a european mount. I don't want to do the boiling because I don't think my stomach or my neighbours could handle the smell. I have heard a few alternatives that I have never tried but sound like they may be worth a try. Reviews also say n

    Best of luck on the sales, Ian.
    Skulls are looking good.

    This was today. I’ll be spraying with peroxide tmrw. Then gluing up the teeth and the cracks.

    Waco? Never viewed Waco as a tourist destination! LOL!
    Come on down to Rockport or Port Aransas. Maybe Corpus Christi.

    BUT......if you're passing through Waco and you're a history or gun enthusiast, check out the Texas Ranger Museum & Hall of Fame.
    It sits right off IH35 just as you cross the Brazos River.
    They have an excellent, awesome gun collection!

    My South Texas hideaway normally has only 2 or 3 frosts per year.
    Wintertime temps run in the low 40's to the 70's.
    Nighttime "MAY" occasionally get down in the mid 30's.

    Last year was freaky! 👀!
    We got down to 15°F! Unheard of! Like a 100 year record.

I had an opportunity to get 6 heads so I figured it’s not a huge loss if they don’t sell but if they do I can take my wife to Mexico this winter.
    Sounds good Ian, but with the current situation in Mexico, even the tourist spots aren't safe.I think it was at Couzemel, a beach was hit by a random gunner firing from a wave runner.
    Acapulco was just hit by a huge earthquake.

    You do as you wish, but I believe I'd just try South Texas.
    Comfortable temps and lot'sa fishing! 😉
    Maybe the Bahamas.

    Blow out the dead bugs when they are dry. Depends on how many come out might have to soak and use air a few more times. Then peroxide in the sun, glue up the cracks and the teeth, varnish and glue on the horns.

    Today I hosed them all off again and washed the horns out with soapy water and a bottle brush.

    Brought my skulls home yesterday. They are meat free. A little smelly but nothing I can’t handle. I broke out the cartilage and have them soaking in water now so that the bugs that are stuck in will come out.

    The odor can be neutralized later with just hot (not boiling) soapy water.
    Oh it works great. All the others I’ve done have been scent free with soap and water.
