    I agree on the mounts, I’ve never loved full mounts and I personally aspire to be a minimalist and a huge taxidermied mount would take up too much room.

    That boiling the head thing is my plan, lady gonzoso just went out to pick up the baking soda.

    Lot's of debate on how to do bone. I have a background in taxidermy, so I'll throw in my two cents. Don't boil, it's too harsh on the bone (Geez, can't wait for G30SF/F250's comment on that!); degrease the bone with Dawn dish detergent; avoid high strength peroxide and any bleach. Here's a site that explains the details, nothing complicated, no harsh chemicals. Just need patience! Post pictures when you are finished.

    I like to do the shoulders as jerky. I’ve got a smoker and everything so I do it proper.
