    I met a young guy who had killed a nice 9 point in the mobility impaired hunt. He has this cool one man tank he rides around and hunts on. His buddy tossed the skull in a pond and let the catfish pick it, pulled it out and it was stained like that. Looked real good.

    @Shane. mabee I'm boiling it to long, but I like to be able to remove the nose peaces to prevent them from breaking. they normally fit back in easily with some super glue.@

    @Joshua I have one setting in water to see how it compares to being in the ground, so that’s interesting to hear. The more I look at it the more I like the old weathered look over the bleached white.

    @Shawn I hadn’t considered glue. The nose pieces got broken trying to pull material through the sinuses so there wasn’t much saving that, but thanks for the tip. I’ll have to give the boiler a second try with that in mind.

    @Shane As soon as the nose peaces come out I stop boiling. it is kinda a sign to tell whether it is boiled enough.
