Skulling

Website is under constant reconstruction as I improve my methods...

This bull sat in my buddy's shed for 6 years before I got my hands on it. Cleaned up real nice!
Skulling (an unofficial word I use) is the art of taking an animal's raw skull, and turning it into a specimen that can be proudly displayed. Common names for skulling creations are skull mounts, and European mounts (technically, a true European mount has the lower portion of the skull cut off so that it lays flush on a board without any teeth). I also include some antler mounts on this website.

This site will focus on deer, antelope, and elk skulls, but the processes described can be modified for any other skull (coyote etc).

Skull pictures come from my own harvests, from donation, from dead-heads I found, or are skulls I cleaned for friends.

The process, when done right, is time consuming and requires much patience. However, it can be done with little investment, and is a great way to display large and small trophies.


Philosophy

I have neither the space nor the money to have my racks displayed in shoulder or full body mount fashion. Additionally, I truly like the "look" of a skull. Over the years, and through much research, I have been slowly improving my techniques for cleaning skulls. Eventually I would like to create museum quality specimens, and after some improvements to my process this year, I am almost there.

Author
I grew up in Michigan, hunting white-tails out of tree stands and off the ground. I cleaned a few skulls over the years, but it wasn't until I moved to Wyoming that I began cleaning many skulls every year and perfecting my methods. As I improved my methods, it became increasingly hard to tell people how to do it, or to remember little tips I'd learned. I couldn't find a skull website that had comprehensive instructions, therefore I decided to create my own with knowledge I've gathered off the web, from other professionals, and from my own trial and error.
