Looks nice. Beetles? Or the boiler? I want to do that on my next buck ('cause I can't afford to have it mounted!), but I dunno if the wife would let me boil a deer head all day in the house, so I gotta think of anther way!

I burred the head up to the horns a month. I flipped over a rubbermaid tub to protect it from critters and burred the edges of the tub to keep in smell. Weight on tube to hold it in place.

So ya pulled it out of the ground, rinsed it off and it was like that? Or did you still have some "leftovers" to deal with (flesh, connective tissue, etc)?

Mine was pretty much like this straight from ground. I still simmered 15 to 20 min kinda and in 90 degree soapy water a week. Then peroxide paste.
