    Well, that's something. Maybe word of mouth will get out and help you.
    Good luck!

    Well the upside is that the financial investment is pretty low. It’s the hours of disgusting work that worth the high price. Even if I do have to sell for much less than I was hoping to I’ll absolutely cover my expenses and make a profit.

    BTW Ian, how are the skull sales doing?
    Making any progress for a southern migration?
    How about getting across the US/Can border?

    With maggots they were smelly when I first pulled them out of the barrel but a wash with soapy water was enough to get rid of that.

    As I stated (I think?) earlier, the one time I used beetles to clean bones, the bones were vile smelling when I got them back.
    I still had to boil the wing bones in soapy water to get rid of the odor and grease.

    Could I guess but the conversation I’ve had on this one is something I don’t want to give up!

    Yes I agree, I am not the first to use a freezer, I’m just glad I found one I can use. It’s definitely big enough.

    Ian, mi amigo, you can start a new thread! LOL!
    If you just want to keep this one alive, I guess that's okay too.

    The two taxidermists I've visited that do the beetle thing, kept them in "retired" freezers they had converted.

    At the risk of sounding negative, I have to say that they look like cow skulls.

    It’s hard to say which country has a dumber leader but I’m pretty sure Canada has USA beat.

    Hoping soon we enter “post Covid” and this nonsense is behind us.
    Not looking for an end to the insanity until 2025 when (R) POTUS is inaugurated
