Skulls and Skeletons / Re: Whitening Deer Skull for European Mount
« Last post by Sea Wolf on Today at 06:55:22 PM »
Peroxide will not damage your skull. What you more than likely have is 40 vol from a beauty supply store. It is not 40%. I submerge the skulls almost up to the antler burrs and then cover the top of the skull and around under the burrs with white cotton cloth. You can use white paper towels too as long as they don't have any printed designs on them.

Hi there - My dad recently passed away and was an avid hunter. His trophies are from South Africa and were never actually mounted for the most part, just prepared (or whatever you call it). I am listing these one by one on Ebay but it's becoming a full time job and my sisters and I are not exactly experts on any of this. These are the items I've got, if you have any interest in anything please email: ddevoe@sbcglobal.net. I am in Californig so shipping is often expensive depending upon the item: Cape Buffalo Mt, Eland Mt., Aoudad Mt., Kudu Mt. Sable Mt, Gemsbok Mt., Impala Mt., Steinbok Mt., Choc Springbok Mt., Warthog Mt., Cape Buffalo Skull and horns, Tsessebe Mt., Impala Mt., Steinbok Mt., Bushbuck Mt., Pronghorm Mt., Springbok Mt., Baboon Mt. Ostrich Mt., FB Klipspringer Mt., Hoof Lamps, Impala skull and horns, Steinbok Horns, Cape Buffalo Hoof Bookends, Giraffe Mt., Waterbuck Mt. I believe these are all African, as I won't be selling anything that's ever roamed the California wilderness (but I may not know what all of these are).  Thanks, Diane

The above is correct. You can't get 40% peroxide. 40 Vol is about 12%. Sally's or any other beauty supply place will carry it and sometimes in gallon jugs. Make sure you get the 40 Vol clear and not the cream. If you look at pool and spa supply places, you can find 27%. It is used in unchlorinated pools. It is also dangerous. Much more so than the 12%.

Skulls and Skeletons / Re: 140 too hot to degrease
« Last post by Sea Wolf on Today at 06:49:53 PM »
Yes, and yes. 120 is the highest it should be. That would be for deer. 115 is all you need for bears and most other carnivores.

Fish Taxidermy / So far so good
« Last post by Cecil on Today at 06:00:31 PM »
So far all fish coming in have been mounted and kept out of the freezer. I have some serious catching up to do but my hope is to get everything that comes in immediately mounted and hanging from the rafters. Not saying it will be done quickly but I won't have to dig in the freezer. I really really want to empty my freezer this winter as this is my slowest period!

I also have some fish I am trying to get the finish work and painting done, and am too embarrassed to say how long I've had them.  :-[ I don't know how you guys that do all the taxidermy categories do it. I have enough trouble getting the fish out!

Skulls and Skeletons / Whitening Deer Skull for European Mount
« Last post by Rob on Today at 05:35:59 PM »
When Whitening a deer skull after Degreasing I am soaking it over night in 40% Hydrogen Peroxide for the whitening. Would you submerge the skull up to the antler burrs or would you just brush it on?  Did  not know if submerging 40% Hydrogen Peroxideover night will damage the skull or not.  Thank You .
