I've only done the one nice mule deer I shot in Wyoming last year and I suggest that you not boil a skull, but rather let it simmer for quite a few hours, taking it out every once in a whole and taking off what has loosened up and skimming the junk out of the water that came off. After it is really done in the water take a sturdy brush and clean it off well so all there is is bone left and let it dry. Then I used a dry powder that you mix with water to make a paste and I applied it liberally to the entire skull to further whiten it, left it for 24 hours, and then flushed it all off with fresh water and a brush.
