A few weeks ago I was volunteered to mount a deer rack (for free). The problem is that the gent left the head in the backyard for several months after it was shot during rifle season and what I got was essentially rotting/mummified deer jerky with antlers (and maggots!). I got the skull cap off and I've been fighting the skin on it ever since. I already have to re-stain the lower part of the bases because they've lightened from soaking, which seems to work in micro increments. The edges where I've managed to skin soften, I shave that away, I soak again. I've shaved a good deal of the hair off hoping it will go a little easier. Does anyone have any tips for getting this skin off? I know it's difficult on fresh heads but this is borderline absurd. Should I get some sharp chisels and a hammer? And if anyone has any pictures of how they cut the skull caps to mount on the plague I would greatly appreciate them. I'll be checking the Tutorial section later but I'm doing the rehydration dance again.
