    Default Cleaning Moose Skull Plate

    Brought home a moose last weekend that I want to turn into an antler mount. What's the best way to get the skull plate clean. Don't think I'm going to be able to boil it (wife definately wouldn't approve of that in the kitchen). What's my next best option?

    Default Best Option

    In my opinion, the second best option is to take it to a taxidermist and have them clean it. Shouldn't be a big cost - just be sure to tell them NOT to mount the antlers.

    AND it's a heck of a lot easier.

    I did a European mount on my moose a few years ago. It was a real pain to get the meat off between the antlers. What worked the best was keeping a hot rag on that area to "steam" it off. Once it was soft I was able to scrape and wire brush most off. I think I may have actually built a tinfoil tent around it too.
