I tried that too. I have a strong stomach but it was almost more than I could take. I will never do that again!

A friend of mine takes the skull and puts a 55 gallon drum over it. In a month or two its clean. It doesnt give off much odor either.

I like that idea.
You can fool some of the bucks, all of the time, and fool all of the bucks, some of the time, however you certainly can't fool all of the bucks, all of the time.

Here it is, sorry it took so long.

I was pretty impressed how it came out of the ground, I think it was buried for about 6 months. I did hose it off and pick at some dirt a bit, but didn't polish it up or whiten it, as you can tell. Something like a root or something kinda attached to it, not sure what I should do next. I just hung it in my garage next to me elk rack that I left on top of a shed for 2 years (wish I wouldn't have done that, sun faded it pretty good).

That turned out pretty decent, Lou. I do no know anyone that does this so it was very interesting to me. 8-)
