Progress on the fake trophy

This is day two of the ammonia bath for my scavenged trophy. Since the local turkey vultures and varmit did the job of the dermestid beetles I have been able to skip the skinning and debraining step. I am now using the ammonia to degrease the skull. (note the brownish color of the usually clear ammonia).

Next, I need to find a local store that has 40 volume hydroxide.
