any ideas on removing horns that have been drying for 5 months?

Try boiling them, let them sit in boiling water for about 20 minutes or so and then try popping them.
BEFORE you BOIL, check the archives.
i know a taxidermist that just puts his in water and lets it stay in it for long periods. i haven't tried this i just do what john said but it seems to work for him
hope this helps
Check the archives BUT DO NOT BOIL THEM'
I had extremely good success soaking horns in a tub of water. It has been my preferred method. Especially in warm weather it works pretty quick. Make sure you clean the horns afterwards with fresh water and let them sit out in the fresh air for the smell to dissapate. Good luck!
