I have seen pictures of some European head mounts where the skull has been camo dipped. the cost was around $75. I think some of them looked pretty cool, something diferent.

not sure if we can name companies on here but go to google and search for: mount "custom dipped" and it will be the first one that comes up. I have seen it other places just don't remeber where. It sounds like they can do any camo pattern on it.

I do my own, I boil it for a while then pick everything off. Then I use some bleech to make it whiter. Kinda fun.

If you look at the forum policy link at the top of this page one can see all the rules for posting such things as contact info.

Many stores sell the kits with the peroxide and other needed material to do this yourself.

It's easy to do yourself, if you have the stomach...It isn't really that bad but it can stink a little. ooo.gif

I use peroxide instead of bleach as bleach can harm the skull, making it chalky. Done about 10-12 in the past years.

There is a woman named Storm Amacker in Saint Paul who does a very professional job with this. I believe her business provides skeletons to medical schools and other scientific programs who study anatomy. She has done 3 of my bucks and I have been very satisfied. It takes a full year.

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
