Whats the best way

of removing Impala horns from the skull if the darn thing has been sitting around for probably several years and is dried to the cores? Will soaking it still loosen it up enough to get them loose? The only thing budging when I try to twist them at all is the fissures (sp) in the skull...

Soak for a couple of weeks and pull the suckers right off. Amazing how the stink will come back in them after all thouse years!

God Bless

Soak the3m for a few weeks and that should do it. Ocasionally I get an impala that has a horn curvature that will not allow them to come off, then I drill a few holes into the core and inject them.
