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.

      Shagawa in Ely has a public beach.  That's the closest to Bear Head that I know of.  You'd have to launch a ways across the lake but you could just motor over to it.

      Sorry for late response.  The Gander in Eden Prairie had quite a few...

      Catfishing is pretty stable right now. The water is getting very low making the north end of Grand Forks begin to get sketchy for travel.  The lack of current has the fish spread out also.  Stay on the move and when you land of fish you should have no trouble catching them.  The best areas have been anywhere you can find more current than the surrounding area.  The middle of the River in mid range holes has also been a good place to look. 
        Bait has changed for me this week with frogs being the hands down number one so far.  Sucker and goldeye have been working too.  I still believe getting bait in front of the fish is is the key more than what the bait is but try it all.   Remember the I-29 Catfish Classic is in just 2 weeks.

      Made it out last night. Beautiful night. Caught a bunch of Crappies, sunnies, a norsky and a few walleyes. All CR. Amazing how quiet the lake was. I was the only boat out for the most part. First boat in parking lot at 5:30 and no AI inspector this time. Have not seen them for quite awhile now.... Water temp was 78. Panfish were caught on simple Jig/plastic in about 12 feet along shoreline weeds. Walleyes on spinner/crawlers in 17-20 on midlake structure.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.
