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!

      Wow, I am certainly getting beat up over on this side of the fence today.  On month old posts and mostly by the mods oddly. ☹️

      Great story and nice fish! I too just put the boat away did a little river fishing but just to cold on the hands even with gloves. Ice season here we come!

      It is definitely getting down to the wire. I want to try and get out one more time if possible! I love ice fishing, but the fall bite has been hot.

      Be careful on public land traps tend to disappear. Don’t set the traps in the open and make another path to check your traps. With duck season going on use traps that will not hold dogs. I like setting banks with mink attractor or 220’s set in rat runs.

      I am looking to start a line this year since I travel 50 miles o e way for work. Looking for any advice and tips. I have some state land I would like to set on. Mostly mink and rats I believe are my targets. Thanks in advance

      Good pics have been hard to come by.  But...   Yes, these are water pics mainly but we’ve hunted fields too. The field hunting has been tough for us with the size of crew we have and the age mix.  Good times; good people.   Besides, a guy that likes divers needs a little water tossed in.  I saw my bucket list can but wouldn’t water swat him to claim him.  Didn’t get a chance at him on the wing.
