Easier Way

The method I use was descibed in Breakthrough awhile ago, it was
written by John Cargill. This method works great for me, and I have
had no trouble at all. Have done bighorn sheep, Corsicans , antelope,
and mountain goats, all with ease.
Just take a knife, such as a fillet knife and just loosen the meat
on the underside if the horn sheath, then when you have this meat cut
up abit and loose, just pour water into the cut. Use abit of water so
it soaks in real good into the meat of the core.
I then place the horns in a plastic bag and let them do there thing.
In about 5 days these horns are usually ready to be removed from the
cores very easily. With the antelope and the goats, I just give them
a twist, and with the sheep horns, you just get a big old wooden block
and give them a whack on the block. Backside of the horns about half
way around.
Give it a try, it is very easy once you do one and get the feel for it.


THANKS KEVIN

Sheep Horn Removal

Works great, the Idea mentioned... with one small change... I drill a 3/8
3/8" hole in the eye socket... then pour hot water in the holes until the
horns are full. Then the plastic bag trick and the boil the skull.
