I plan to stay another week after the antelope hunt and maybe hunt some mulies before I drive back to Florida. I'm trying to decide if I should try and process/mount the horns myself or drop them off at a taxidermist in the Douglas area. Any advise would be appreciated.
I would drop them off and have them processed while you are there if you can find someone
that will do it for you in that short amount of time. It is very smelly work no matter how you
do it and if you let it rot off you will have a tough time getting rid of the smell.
If no one will help you out then just skin and flesh the skull cap and ice it down to have it done
or do it yourself when you get back home. If you don't want to fool with it when you first get
home just freeze them and deal with them later.
when boiling them be careful not to place the horns in the hot water or you will have to paint
or stain them when finished.
