I'm almost through with the beatle thing on a 10 point from last year . I didnt even clean the scull first . The head and neck part that I had frozen was about 15 pounds before I started and 20 days later it was nothing left but scull a little hide on the neck and some neck bone . I took a plastic garbage can with a lid --that had some holes in the bottom --took a plastic bag in the bottom with the head and filled it up to the horns where it would soften--shut the lid and waited--the flys got to it first -then after a week I took a stick and let most of the remaining water out . It as 20 days yesterday and I took it out and I am soaking in the pond for a couple days for the oder to get gone a little before I bleach the scull.
It was so many beatles in there I couldnt count them all .
Dont know what kind they were but hey did the job and they live in my yard

My brother in law tried that with an antelope head, but a stray dog got a hold of the head and we never saw it again.

Bad deal.

I read the article and do basically the same thing as HOOK with one MAJOR exception. I NEVER skin, trim meat, remove eyes, brain, anything before boiling. I'll cut the neck off up high near the base and drop it in the water. After 2-3 hours all that stuff you would've carefully removed before boiling is just falling off. I do a couple minute scraping and run the screw driver in the brain cavity stir around and shake it out. Since it's all cooked it just drops out. I then pour all the soupy water, meat, skin and all (I don't add any soap) out for the dogs! It's gross but they LOVE IT! Start with new water and boil another hour and good to go. Proceed on to bleaching.

I tried this technique with a boar hog head. Same results: dogs dug up the skull and it's gone! What a disappointment: first boar, bow kill, looked forward to seeing it mounted. Of course, my wife may have shown the dogs where to look. lol
