    I just use another plastic tote like the one on the floor in your picture and set it on top upside down for cover.

    I do it the fish tank heater way. This buck had hair/skin dried all over, was hit by a car. It was a target buck of ours and a buddy found it driving down the road. He was on camera every day/night until Oct. 10th, then gone. He had two roads to cross before he got o our spot. He was also a fighter, he had one eye, a gash on his hip, a broken nose and multiple old scars.
    It didn't take that long, there was some stink involved, a lot of stink. After less than a month it was clean, 3/4 of the water was changed once 1/2 way. Then a clean water/dawn soak for a few days. Then air dried completely in front of fan then 40% peroxide soak for two days. Not one hint of a stinky rotten deer and nice and white.

  3. That’s really beautiful, wow! ❤️

    I have yet to get my hands on some good peroxide... I was told that, what, “sauna/jacuzzi cleaner” or something like that is pretty much the same thing...? (But not to tell them it’s for bones LOL)

    So far, I only have 3% which... well, it works on small stuff, but I have the two deer, two sheep and goat that are in the process of maceration, (which I’m hoping works..), and I have a sheep, a goat and a small deer from previous times that just need some cleaning up, probably a dawn soak, and then they’re ready for a peroxide soak too.

    I have a few other questions about some skulls, but should I start a new post about them..?
