Antelope Mount

I'm going to mount an Antelope ( first one) and was wondering how I take care of the horns and get them off the skull plate?

Most taxidermists I know myself included use an old microwave oven. Start microwaving on full power and check often until the sheaths pull off. Clean off all meat and tissue and reattach sheaths to the bases using bondo. You can also boil off but there is a greater chance of the sheaths cracking and splitting if you are not careful! Good Luck!
