    I just hate it. It stinks and takes forever. Especially when it is still cold out. %^& #%[email protected]!

    My standard answer when someone ask this question is to put it in the microwave. LMAO. Have fun.

    i had to rot two steer heads this summer and i live in town, i just barried up to the horns and watched to make sure the squirrels weren't chewing it up then took the caps off within a week and the skull was clean in a month
