Found : Moose Skull

Recommended Posts

WAG416

A couple of rifle seasons ago I had found a 48" bull moose skull while making a drive and have kept it in the garage since then.

Is there anything one can do to clean it up/bleach it?

What else would someone suggest to do with it?

Take a big bowl and put 1/2 water and 1/2 hydrogen peroxide. It makes them all nice and pretty. (white)

I have taken Buffalo heads and put them on Ant piles for a month and they realy clean off any meat that is left. I don't know what to do as far as bleaching them out. caj

There are bleaching kits in Cabelas. I used one once and it really gets it white.

I have used the ant trick as well for deer skulls. Cleans up real nice. I do suggest you anchor your item so you don't get a cridder hauling off with it.

Kind of unrelated, but while duck hunting out of a canoe a couple years ago up north I saw a bone sticking up out of a wild rice filled stream, I yanked on it and an entire pelvic region of a moose was connected. Kinda neat, have it up at the cabin.

I bleached out a coyote skull a few years ago by putting it in a 2 gal bucket of water and adding around 1/2 cup of chlorine bleach to it. I soaked it for 3 or 4 days. Worked great! Still looks good yet! grin.gif The skull was already void of hair,meat ect. when I bleached it.

You may want to try to avoid getting the horns in the solution though!

      I agree I have not heard much on here about the area.  Headed to shields on Saturday,  hope it pans out.

      I have a Striker Hardwater and the Wife has the Clam Rise suit. Both are great and we chose them based on how they fit, each body is different and you will find different brands and even product lines within a brand will fit different. I would try stopping by Thorne Bros and see what they have in stock to try on, they might have more upstairs if you dont see your size.  Float suits dont go on sale much other than the Blaine Ice show, St Paul Ice show, Black Friday and then after the season.

      This are premium Rods from Alpha Angler. This company is the rod sponsor for 2017 Bassmaster Angler of the Year Brandon Palaniuk. The Rebound: is a glass cranking rod. Best I've ever used. Fantastic feel. The Zilla: is a a perfect all around Rod. I primarily used it for pitching jigs. I've owned these rods for less than a year they were purchased in spring 2018. I just have way more tackle rods reels etc. Than I have room for. Rods new retail together are $475 I'm selling them as a package for $320. Or individually for $175 each.  I'm in the north metro area. And am willing to drive a reasonable distance if need be. Feel free to make an offer but a serious ones only. Also I have photos of the Rods if youd like just email me and I'll send then to you. Let me know!  Email me at  [email protected]

      I posted some pic's of the heaves on above Fishing Reports info post.   Pretty interesting if you never seen anything like that.   CRUNKY CRUNCHY sounds of ice on rocks last night as trucks drive on an off.....always fun.   T

      Went out just to check ice depth today, measured 13.5" on lake one a couple hundred yards out from the public access in town.  No snow left, very slick, and lots of heave action on a majority of the shoreline.

      Me too. Got out few times before but nothing really going on. This was my best outing yet for me this season. Hoping to have more of these days!  I'm glad you enjoy my videos. You can follow my channel if you want to see all my videos. I only post some on this site.
