I submitted a post on having trouble removing bull horns. They had some damage and I was afraid to soak them anymore. This is it. http://www.taxidermy.net/forum/index.php/topic,95658.0.html With a keyhole saw and a rubber hammer I now have two heads that are horn free. I was pretty proud of myself when they finally come off but that is not why I was posting again. I searched for polishing horns on here and only found one thread. It says to start with coarse sand paper and work your way finer until you can smooth them down with steel wool. Then to polyurethane them or to buff them on a buffer wheel to bring back the shine. Does anyone know if I could get the damage to those one horns I had pictured to smooth again? Would it just be a process of sand until you were afraid they were getting to thin????? Just a couple more things. The heads are pretty much clean. Some places skipped on skinning arounjd the base of the horns but other than that and maybe some hide around the eyes they are clean of hide, muscle etc. Can I soak them until I can remove that by hand then oxy clean them white without having to heat them. These are big heads and it would be a lot of work to get that much water hot for very long. Is sunshine and fresh ait the best way to rid them of smell before they are hung inside???
