    Luckily... I do not:) Not sure if harvester ants will do the same.

    FireInTheWire,

    I have allowed ONE fire ant bed to remain UN-poisoned & "not burned out" as it's far from our farmhouse & YEP friends & I have "fed the ants" with deer skulls several times.

    I know ZILCH about harvester ants, btw.

    yours, satx

    Lonesome Dove,

    VERY NICE JOB, imVho.
    (Fwiw, I've paid to have my LAST "head" done professionally, UNLESS/UNTIL I may collect a REALLY SPECTACULAR Cape Buffalo with my XB.)

    After a friend in the German Army did a Euro-mount of my II-B Hirsh, I asked myself WHY I was paying $$$$$$$ to a taxidermist.

    yours, satx

    Did you use anything to restore the color in the antlers? I have a Euro that I have bleached the skull, but the antlers have faded from the sun while nature did its thing. I've read about using stump remover. I'm considering acrylic paint.

    I have used a poly or even lacquer on some but these are natural.

    Just finished my Arkansas buck 1151C9B0-1C1D-4B5A-96C8-3EAAF4378CE4.jpeg yes, this is the one with the methbilly teeth.

    thanks for the boiling in peroxide tip. I usually finish with peroxide and sunlight. You sped up the process !
