      Hi, I wanted to let you know the peroxide soak worked. 3 days. Did the job thanks again.

      I'm from there lol I use the 40 volume peroxide would you recommend using it straight or mix with water. I thank you for your help.

        Use it straight. It burns so don't get it on your skin. If you do rinse well and curse until it stops hurting. Don't splash it or get it near your eyes either. Put the skull in something like a plastic shoe box or small container that it fits into without a huge amount of extra space.

        Pour in the peroxide until as much of the skull is covered without getting it on the antlers (will turn them white). Take white paper towels and tear them into strips. Lay the strips up and over the part of the skull that isn't under peroxide. Tuck the strips under the antler burrs. The paper towel will get wet with peroxide and bring it up and over the top of the skull.

      Hi SeaWolf, I had question about a smell in a WT skull mount. the deer head did smell before I started, it has been decreased in dawn looks good but the odor. Seen some post soaking in peroxide or ammonia. Any help would be great.

        By "smell" I assume the head was starting to decay before you cleaned it? How did you remove the flesh? If you cooked it off, bits of rotted tissue are still going to be trapped in tight areas inside the skull. Try soaking it in peroxide for at least a day if not two or three. The peroxide will do a lot to sterilize it and dissolve out bits of tissue. When you go to do this, if it is foaming a lot, it isn't clean.

        How long did you degrease it for? Ammonia will help if it is grease but the fumes from it are horrid to work with.

      Also can you remove the ear cartilage after it has been tanned?

        I did not see this till today. The tans I work with are dry tans and that would be a no. Once tanned the ears all become one and it's next to impossible to try and remove cartilage without ruining the skin. Possibly can be done with a wet tan but again, toss this out to the other guys and ask. The ones that work with the other tanning methods could answer better than I.

      Sea Wolf, have a question for you. I was working on a my deer and noticed that I had not completely opened one of my ears. The deer hide has already been tanned and I thought was ready to be mounted, what do I need to do next?

        Hi, To be honest, I do little fur work. My forte is skull and bone work. If you toss that out as a question in the Game Head section or one of the taxidermy sections you'll get some good answers from some great people.

        Hi, Not sure if this is old or new. Still getting used to this new forum. .... 27% peroxide has several brand names. Baquacil Oxidizer and Pool Mate are two that I know of. It is VERY important to specify a shock for **Non Chlorinated Pools**.
