Actually... There's a guy in St. Cloud that does just that. The Oct 19th Outdoor News had a nice article about it. A guy I work with had their MN moose done... he does great work. However I cannot remember his name.

I'm sure someone can recall however...

I'll grab the issue when I get home and get some contact info for ya if nobody else chimes in.

the guy that I went to in saint cloud is at beetlemybones hes got my scull as we speak he said it would take around 90 days. And it would cost $75 plus extra if you want it on a piece of wood.

If you've got a warm place you could try and DIY. Dermestids are native, they are dry, and if you do a good job fleshing out the skull, using an awl on tough to reach tissues, you can get rid of most of the rotting tissue that would bring odor issues. Starter colonies are sold online and on ebay. Mount the skull as you see fit and you're good to go.

You could hold onto them for a while and start a new hobby or have a new pet. Skull collections are fun to do and you won't have the nasty smell of boiling and using harsh chemicals in the kitchen.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.

      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.

      Ive had the same issue.  I turned both the motor and remote of for 30 seconds or so and then worked fine.  it has happened twice for me.  Hope its not reoccurring which would be very annoying.  For the cost,  this stuff should work.  I wonder if they are I-link motors?  Mine is.
