    Been doing taxidermy for about 5 years now, but never have done an European mount myself, always sent them off to have them commercially done. Times being what they are, would like to keep more money in my pocket then send them off. Have read Wolfwomens Maceration process and was wondering do I need to protect the antlers in any way during soaking of the skull? How about the peroxide part to whiten the skull?.....If yes what do I do? ???........any help would be appreciated

    Not during maceration or degreasing ... but do a search on whitening antlers and you will find information on how to whiten the skull in strong peroxide and not have it get on the antlers. :)
