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!

      Fished a couple hours late Tues afternoon, Weds and Thurs morning. Caught supper on Tues pulling leadcore in about 31' out from Zipple. Not the huge schools like a few weeks ago but enough to fish. Weds went rock hopping and found fish on about half the humps, no biggies. Seemed to be an unusual number of very nice boats for a Weds and all pulling leadcore. Good deal for me as I was fishing spinners. Found out that night about the AIM tourney explaining the boat show with the guys prefishing. Thurs morning was out 11 miles from the washout pulling baits in the mud and the bite was pretty good. Again, not the massive numbers seen previously but a good number of biters. The charters were scattered all over the basin with some up north as well. Still a fair number of boats bait fishing out deep. Sure hate to see summer slipping away.   Good luck.

      I have not been tromping though the woods but did flush a couple picking blueberrys

      I agree with Rayguy. A lot of ecological changes happening everywhere and I think we’re seeing that on the Whitefish chain. Keep looking for new spots and new structure. Fish are still there. It’ll be interesting to see how Fall fishing goes. I am planning on fishing the next couple of days. I’ll let you know how I do.

      Ace is right, no need to run to far to find walleyes! They are all over the East end where you will be staying. The number one rule is "trust your depth finder"! I never fish a spot unless I see a few fish there! Lindy rigs, spinner rigs, slip bobber rigs, and jigs will all catch walleyes that time of the year. Cliff

      Thank you, my husband and I usually go to Kabetogama . but we are going to go later, had a chance to go here for the first time(Labor day weekend)and are excited to try it. Found a private cabin to rent very reasonable in that bay.

      I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.

      No brush or yard waste burning today through Sunday The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency has issued an air quality alert for today through Sunday for northern Minnesota.    As a result, the Department of Natural Resources will not issue burning permits for brush or yard waste for all areas north of Alexandria, including Mille Lacs and Pine counties. Burn restrictions may expand as smoke from the Canadian fires drifts south. For updates and the air quality forecast, check the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency website.

      If you are looking for Walleyes stay on the east end. There is no need to go running all over the lake to catch them. Daisy bay has Walleyes available as does Big bay which in my opinion has some of the best Walleye fishing on the lake.  Trolling cranks works this time of year, as well as Lindy rigging, or pulling spinners on a bottom bouncer. You can also find some decent evening slip bobber fishing close to where you are staying.  Good luck and have fun, you won't be disappointed.     "Ace" "It's just fishing man".
