Brain is a bit of a challenge. I tried sticking a wire have in there and scrambling them out but it wasn't as effective as I'd hoped. I may just hack saw the back tomorrow.

Bend some coat hanger into a small loop shaped like a P and put it into your cordless drill. Wear eye protection and facemask, haha! Long tweezers for that pesky membrane stuck at the bottom.

I have a 8pt in my garage I passed multiple times.  Think a car got him.  No wounds found.  Still need to clean him up a bit, bugs got most of it.  Thanks for the tips!

Make your own and save some cash. Super simple. Buy a small trash can, a hot water heater element, some watertight epoxy or chaulk and a cord for the element. Done. I'll take pics of mine if I can find it. Cost me right around $20.

I agree. I don't need one. Was just curious if anyone actually bought that thing

Rather than euro’s I just do these. Simple, clean, etc.

Not hijacking this thread but wanted to say, that lynx mount looks amazing. Love the size of his paws to travel on the snow.

You must be married, otherwise you'd be doing that on the kitchen stove.

Good call.... :)

can't speak for him but if i wasn't married it wouldn't matter. i'd still be doing it no in the house. smelly process for sure.

Interesting....Oxiclean IN the boil? That could help break the grease I bet. Sorry if I was confusing but I made a paste of Oxiclean and water AFTER I did the boil and meat removal. Put the Oxiclean on and let site for 12-16 hours before chipping it off and rinsing.

i use oxyclean in the boil too. wisk works well or anything mild that will cut the grease.

Do you then cover the picked clean skull with Oxiclean?

Keep scrambling and boiling ,eventually you can grab it by the antlers and shake it out.

nope. simmer it in bulk 40 volume peroxide water solution for like 10 minutes. the oxiclean is only to degrease it.

1 part water, 3 parts peroxide.

i don't scramble too much. bought long surgical forceps on the net that are slim enough to get in, grab it, and pull it out. pressure washer flushs out the rest.

there's liquid (clear) and then more of a shampoo consistency. shampoo like stuff i'll brush on but i like the liquid and simmering. it gets in all the hard to reach spots and i'll never be done and realize one spot didn't get as much. kind of a waste if you're not doing more than one skull though. i get my stuff from a hairdresser surplus store around here called Sally's.

I used a spade bit in my cordless drill.

For the brain... I stick a screwdriver in the hole to do a bit of scrambling while its boiling.  Then shake it out.

Not glamorous, but effective.

The more I read the more I’m glad I’m willing to pay someone else to do this job.

Processing 3 deer was enough work. I don’t need to also be doing 2 euro mounts myself as well
