I just boil the skull at a low temperature until clean. Never used peroxide.

Skull Cleaning 101.pdf:


When I harvest an animal that I plan to do a European mount on I usually roughly cape the animal then bag it up and put it in my freezer until I am ready to clean it. Below is how it looks when I take it out of the freezer.
It's always fun going to Tom's house and opening the freezer just to get some ice.

Speaking of freezers, I have a freezer full of amberjack, tuna, duck, dove, deer and wild hog. The problem is that I married a woman who won't eat seafood or wild game!

My freezer is full of Alaska Salmon, Halibut, and Mule deer right now. We eat a couple days a week on it. I am heading to Montana in a couple weeks. If there is an Elk or deer brought back I will have a problem. In other words I will be buying a new freezer...

With an unhappy ending.

The bear dies.

I would bet that the Merritt Parkway kills more deer than all hunters in New England combined. Passed 5 deer carcasses on my way in yesterday alone and I only drive about 25% of the MP.

I like hunting and hope to kill a nice deer this month for the meat, but honestly it's pics like that, that turn people against hunting and hunters. Killing a bear is an honor and to stage a photo like that is a real shame.
Probably killed over bait, which is a shame in itself.

Good lord, another good hunting thread hijacked by offended "normal" people. Frankly, I find it offensive for a lot of offended people to take up space where indigenous people groups, if they are ok being called that and I don't mean any offense by that, and animals used to cohabitate in peace. Damn shame.

The guy that shot this bear has fairly advanced cancer. It was shot over bait. I helped track it because the hunter has no feeling in his feet. The outfitter has a bear party to honor the bear every time he gets one. He ha been doing this for 40 plus years. It is a very different way to celebrate a hunt.
