Field notes from Northeast Texas.
inspired by your deer head boil video, i have tried it. Its going pretty good. I had to stop and re-start a lot. I burnt my thumb pretty good. I had to do it on the grill outside, but that was kind of nice. Thanks for the video. I tried it on a spike that my friend killed (his first deer and he didnt want the head). Thanks again.
I just took it inside on the gas stove. Good cheap heat. Good luck! Get out the toothbrush.
Send me a photo if you can and I will post it on here.Blackfork6@aol.com.
In Africa, I saw many skulls cleaned very well by simply burying them in the ground up to the base of the horns -- did a spectacular job of cleaning the skull (can't do it in the wintertime because it relies on insects - but we tried it in Indiana in the Fall and it worked great. Lots easier than boiling also). In Canada on a moose hunt, they boiled the skulls so we could take them home right away, but if you have time, using the insects in the garden is easier.
