      Got this one back from Jeff Schwartz in Wahpeton yesterday. Euros make the antlers look a lot bigger, like when you shave your junk. Or so I’m told.

      I have done quite a few euros over the years and yes a boil or simmer will get the job done. But if you have your skull in a rolling boil for a long period of time teeth can start to pop out and the nasal bones will fall out. Nothing a little super glue cant fix. As KDM stated boiling also seems to stain the skull. Simmering seems to work much better in my experiences, teeth and bones stay put, and meat/cartilage seems easier to remove. Do you hard boil a pot roast to get it tender or simmer it lol.

I think it causes the fats, blood, and lipids in the skull to "cook" into the bone instead of emulsify and come out of the bone and into the water. We keep the water at around 190-200 tops when the skulls come out of the beetles. Hope this helps.

      yep, green soap from the kitchen, will try another

      I tried a couple of different simmering method but the job was ultimately done best by this kit: https://www.melbyoutdoors.com/produc...-whitening-kit

      I’m pretty pleased how it turned out considering it was my first try. I sold the cape for $30 so I guess buying the kit was a wash but this takes a lot of time. You’re gonna burn a day or two that could be used doing something else which is the biggest cost.

      The WT on the left was done by boiling that I paid to have done. Looks good but kinda sloppy. The guy cut some bone in the back of the skull which makes it difficult to hang with the skull hooker. The muley was done by beetles and looks the best. And you get all the little nasal bones, etc. In my opinion, doing one yourself is something you do once to say you did it and the rest you pay to have done. They’ll likely do a better job and you don’t have to burn fishing and hunting time to do it.

      I don't have to out run the bear. I just have to out run you.
