boiling caribou skull and peeled antlers

I do alot of deer and bear skulls here in Northern Wisconsin and I know it will only be a matter of time before someone will want me to do a caribou. When I do deer skulls I allow the antler bases to be in the boiling water with no ill effects. Since caribou are different and someone brings me a skull with just peeled antlers will the boiling water damage the antler? I'm afraid of the antler bases getting so soft they might break off. Having no experience can someone advise me on this. Is this something i should just not even try to do? Thanks so much. Skullery
