    I have a dried Whitetail skull and need to remove the nose piece bones. I have tried boiling but they will not loosen up, any suggestions?

    I'm surprised that didn't work...I wouldn't recommend boiling it, but it should have worked. Simmering for an hour to an hour and half should loosen it up. You can try maceration for 5-7 days, that will do it.

    Why do you want to remove them? The skull can be soaked for several days to soften them enough for removal.
