Thanks for the compliment -It took about 3 weeks after they knew it was there- cause i put it under an old yard cart out in the woods - did not know if any animals would try & eat the horns is the reason for being under the cart- the beetles did a great job - i looked up what kind they were on the net after seeing them but cant remember their name -- I just pulled the loose skin off that was still there & put it in volume 40 peroxide for about 24 hours ( the peroxide does an awesome job) looks like a chemistry project when you 1st drop it in the peroxide starts bubbling up.

If I hadn't seen this for myself, I wouldn't believe it:
A buddy of mine from AR killed a decent 6 pointer 2 weeks ago, took the head and tied a wire to a post driven in the ground (to keep the coyotes, dogs, etc. from draggin it off), and put it right on top of a fire-ant mound. The thing was eaten clean in only 2 days!! \:o
I knew those litte rascals were mean, but I didn't know they were THAT mean!!

those turkey boilers make great places to boil the heads becasue you can leave them outside, it really doesn't smell good cooking, take the head out from time to time and ram a screw driver into the backside of the skull and scramble the brains around. When you finish boiling pick all of the meat off and boil one more time, You can then spray paint it white, black, rebel flag, hunter moss, bow hunter, or whatever you want to do, I know an airbrush artist, who does cool designs and stuff on the head for me.

I need to glue back in the two nose pieces of my buck.

Do I super-glue the pieces back in before using the peroxide or after?

after

if done before the peroxide will pull the marrow (I guess) from the bone to the super glue giving you a nice red tint...Or at least it did on one I was doing several years ago.
