I'll be glad to help you cull some of them out of the herd.
I was just kidding. Nice buck!
Did you use a power washer at all after it did it's time in the pot?
Nope. Didnt have to do a thing. The only thing i did differently this time was leaving it in the water overnight to cool off. Its like it gelled everything and it all peeled off in one piece.
Had mine done professionally. It turned out nice, but next time I will be doing it myself. Have a pressure washer and a turkey fryer, not worth the $100 to pay someone.
From that angle, that deer looks very symmetrical. Got one from the front? I like symmetry.
I started cleaning skulls several years ago. I found that using a product called sal soda really helps make the meat fall off quicker. You can get it from a taxidermy supply. Cutting off as much meat as possible first and a fresh skull makes for a clean skull.
Deer generally don’t need to be degreased or whitened. To whiten one I use peroxide and water. Have to use the concentrated peroxide used to die hair. Bear skulls are greasy and take an extra soak to degrease.
If I figure out how to post pictures from this phone I’ll show what I’ve been doing with the skulls to display them.
Turkey fryer for a few hours, pick away, repeat as/if needed. Go to a beauty salon and ask for their peroxide. Those "blonds" use some wicked stuff, but it really whitens and is pretty cheap there. The gal knew what I wanted as soon as I walked in.
Ducker, I really like that wood plack that your mount is on, pretty cool.
Thanks, it was an extra $20 from the taxidermist. A no brainer with the way it looked.
