    Is it possible to remove velvet from caribou antlers after they have been injected with formaldehyde, without damaging the antlers?

    yes, soak them in a tank of water for a week or two to soften velvet then slow boil them for 30 min and the velvet should scrape off fairly easy.

    So how did that work?? We had some that were treated and I tried to rot them off with no luck.

    Submerage antlers in water for couple of weeks. Then let the pressure washer do the rest...there's no need to boil...It would take a massive boil pot for caribou antlers 110 gal min.
