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

    • They are finally done. Just glued up today. The deer was a little crooked and the bottom jaw did not fit up to the skull nicely but overall I’m happy with the end result

      • If I might ask, what are the spots on the top, left skull?

        Good job, mi amigo!

          Top left is a deer skull. It was road kill from several years ago and was in pretty rough shape. A friend asked me to try make it better than what it was. There was a lot of dried skin and cartilage on it. I didn’t want to get too aggressive with boiling or chemicals and damage it to the extent that it would be trashed. It was very brittle when I got it.

          The spots are actual holes in the skull. Eyes and damage. I’m not thrilled with the outcome but it’s better than it was. Maybe on one of my own non trophy’s I’ll let it get dried up like that so I can practice fixing a mess. Then If I wreck it nobody will care. That was just soaking in water and then peroxide. Badly stained though.

            • I glued up as much as I’m going to. It’s gone as far as I’m going to take it.

                  • I’m going to try another method of cleaning. I got 3 more sheep skulls. I put them on the bottom of the compost bin we typically fill with grass clippings over summer. Since it’s winter in Alberta there’s no grass clippings! I filled the bin with used coffee grinds from Starbucks in an effort to keep it warm and hopefully enough worms are active to clean the skulls. Just a trial, so we will see in the spring time! If it does not work I’ll clean them the way I did all the others. Anyone try this method?

                      Good to see you around.

                      • I got a nice doe. Be a good bunch of sausage in the freezer so I’m looking forward to that. Trying out the back straps for supper tonight.

                        Covid has taken its toll on lots of people and I think everyone just wants to get back to normal.

                        • Congrats on the doe. I always look for a big old meaty doe for sausage, links, etc. They're just "better". 😃!

                          Other than the inanity of mask mandates, lockdowns and social distancing, we've had no problems.
                          Oh, and all the insanity of Gov't intervention in places gummint shouldn't be intervening.

                                  Problem is, none of the Courts agreed to hear the case and see the evidence. You must be thick because that fact is widely known. The MSM reported their...
