    George The older I get, the better I was.

    PITA is the perfect category for them.

    Nice big skull! Will be interesting to follow this one, I hope to get a fresh one some day in the future for my own collection.

    Thanks for all the compliments on the shop!

    I just pulled this guy a few hours short of 7 days. The first picture is after a quick hose to check how loose everything was and the other pictures is after about 15 minutes picking with hemostats. Ready for degreasing fun. That is another PITA with these guys.

    Gee, that came out really nice. Do the horns get soft on those at all? I would have thought they would react like a buffalo.

    They are no softer around the edges than when I started. I let it dry today before putting in degreasing and will do it in short phases.

    so how in the heck did you rot that with out getting the horns in the water? Bag part of the skull, or heavy bags around the horns?

    looks great RD. Not sure why people get butt hurt cause you won't give secrets out to just anyone. It takes years to learn and practice. By the way, thanks for the pm with the info! :)

    Pretty nice RD. Just did a search on what I do for large horned critters and could not find it so it must be a secret or at least not talked about alot. Im sure looking at the picture our process must be close.
     
  19. Judging by that nasty pink puddle next to your pallet, I'd guess there was some rot water involved ;) Not worried about the horns getting soft, but whats your secret to getting the stink out of the horns?

    It was truly nice of you to send all the info about how you did it. The 50 pictures you sent and the highly detailed discussion was even better. I really like your novel approach to how to deal with this species. Don't worry, I won't forward anything you sent me to anyone.
