in texas.. we just toss skulls on top of the antbed.. in a few days its bone white.. best way to boil large things is get a 4 legged cast iron
fireplace grate or something similar..a welder can make you one thats about 2 foot tall for $10
then sit a clean 55 gallon drum on it fill it
with the desired amount of liquid needed and
light the fire under it..hope this helps..sc

Thanks spacecowboy...
I will keep that in mind. Seems thats how someone else told me how to do it once. Altho, i havent gottin a fresh enough one for me to have to do that yet.. The ones I get have pretty much been sitting for a while, and just found... There usually pretty clean, except for a lil black and dirty here and there... I have done 10 so far... Still havnt gottin any pictures done yet... Im a bad procrastinator sometimes, or my boyfreind is, cuz he hasnt gottin any film yet for the camera... Still workin on it tho..
Been a lil pre-occupied lately tho, got wedding plans to do. Gettin married in October. Ole James is gonna have him a daughter-in-law LoL, he will probably take me huntin for a wedding present, I wouldnt mind tho.....

Didn't really mean nothin by it. Just meant, I guess, that the hunting will come with the territory(Jamie). Hell, already been fishin, coonin, squirl, deer, and half/ass beaverin with him, dont mind none of it. At least he's got him a girl that will, not just let him, but will also go with him when his buddies dont want to.
As for the good guy...... Yeah, he's alot like ya. Ya raised em good, thats what I love about em.

Hi, I'm on the FFA Wildlife team at Sandra Day O' Connor High school in Helotes, Texas. My ag teacher is always telling us to collect skulls from different game animals so that we can practice identifying them for the techniques part of the wildlife contests. He was at some wildlife conference or something a couple of weeks ago and he told us that people from the other teams just let the skulls soak in a bucket of water for a few weeks and things in the water get all the meat off and clean the brains out. He said the skulls looked very clean and advised us to start doing that for the skulls we collect. You might ought to try that. Hope this helps.

Texas 4X4.. Did you smell those skulls? If you didn't smell them then they did something to them besides just letting them sit in a bucket of water. I cann't think of anything more rank than an animals skull that has been sitting in a bucket of water for a couple of weeks to get the meat off of it.

Most people use a peroxide solution to kill the smell after it has been through the defleshing. As far as getting the flesh off there are faster ways than setting in a bucket but I cann't think of one that smells good.

The bleaching that Amy is talking about is done to turn the skull a brilliant white before it is being painted. The problem she ran into with the one skull is the fact it came off a 2000 lb + brahma/simatal(sp) bull with a horn width of about 2 feet. The skull is about 2.5 feet long and just to danged big to get it in a 5 gal. bucket. I don't think the thing would fit in a #3 washtub it is so big. I have one of the horn slips and it is 11 inches long and it is four inches in diameter. And that is with about 6 inches of the tip originally cut of so the old bull wouldn't gore you......... James L.
