First off, I am NOT a taxidermist. What real taxidermists can do is something far beyond my talents! But I do like to do my own Euro mounts if at all possible and enjoy learning new methods to make it easier. However for some reason in the last few years I kind of dropped the ball and let a couple heads sit around getting stinky and dried out. This last month I finally got my butt in gear and decided to get a couple done, which were my whitetail bucks from 2015 and 2013. The following pics show the skulls in various stages through to completion. The two skulls after sitting in my garage for 2-4 years. 2015 on the right and 2013 on the left. Gross! After a week soaking in water to try to rehydrate them. This was really bad! In the cook pot. After the initial clean. Looking much better now! After the whitening process, ready for the wall! I'm sure there are lots of guys on here doing this at home, and most probably better than me, but the difference in these skulls from beginning to end result was pretty satisfying, so I thought I'd share.
