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.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will collect and analyze water samples from about 90 wells in Washington County this spring. The data are being collected for the Washington County Geologic Atlas, an effort involving the Minnesota Geological Survey and the DNR’s Ecological and Water Resources Division.  DNR staff will contact county residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. Tests will profile the general chemical characteristics of area groundwater and will also show approximately how long the water has been underground. Geology, location, well depth and well construction will determine the selection of wells for sampling. Owners of sampled wells will receive a report of the laboratory results for the water sample collected from their well. Preserving the long-term quality of the region’s surface water and groundwater requires that policymakers have access to accurate information based on sound scientific principles. A county geologic atlas is a valuable tool for county planners, resource managers and other local government staff when making general planning, land use management and water resource protection decisions. The Minnesota Geological Survey has already published Part A of the atlas, which illustrates details of each county’s geology. In 2019, the DNR will publish the groundwater portion of the atlas (Part B). The Part B reports will include maps and descriptions of the distribution and movement of groundwater, cross sections illustrating groundwater conditions, and the pollution sensitivity of aquifers in the county. The DNR County Geologic Atlas program is funded in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources. Funding also comes from the Clean Water Fund, which receives 33 percent of the sales tax revenue from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment approved by voters in November 2008. A full description of this DNR program and status reports for atlas products is available on the DNR website. For information, contact: Jim Berg, DNR hydrogeologist, 651-259-5680, jim.a.berg@state.mn.us; or Paul Putzier, DNR county geologic atlas program supervisor, 651-259-5692, paul.putzier@state.mn.us.
