I assume you bury the skull rather than boil it to get it started for a European mount? Just let the worms strip it? How long do you bury it for and what is the plastic bag for?A reasonably cool and low humidity day for the first full day of Summer ahd me outside for about 10 hours taking care of things.
Got the steep banks and backside of the pond dam mowed.
Saw three snakes, but only got a shot at one, so now there's two snakes.
Dug up the muzzleloader buck skull I'd nearly forgotten about.
The pet doe seemed interested in when I was going to be getting off that mower and letting things get peaceful again.
Got another 2-3 hours work to do tomorrow and then I might have time to do a little fishing and or shooting.
I need to tag that wild grape vine for a winter transplant and get a support setup for it.
Muscadine I think.

Yes, I covered the antlers with the bag and zip tied it around the base, then buried the skull leaving the antlers above ground.I assume you bury the skull rather than boil it to get it started for a European mount?

You're quite welcome Jimmy ! (I was kinda hoping you'd have some with one or both of your boys ).Oh good Lord. Stared at it for a bit before Work, thought about it AT Work, got home and thought I heard it trying to say something, but it was muffled. Thought hell, it might have something important to say, so removed it's Cork.
Made a huge mistake, smelled the Cork, then the Bottle and it was game on!
Youngest Son (24) and I agreed. "Let's Do This".
It's a Religious experience! Start to finish? AMAZING!
@Threadcutter308 Words alone cannot describe thee appreciation!

Shit. I’ve been scared to get back into training since I tore my right calf getting ready for a half. That was over a year ago.Well ladies, I have been off the lifting and running for a bit due to some issues with muscle spasms when running. Doc something prescribed rest and stretching, which became rest and beer and extra snacks.
So I have become a fat ass. Well maybe not, but for a guy who thinks training for a half marathon is a 6 week train up to do well, I have a little extra and am not fit enough to run 8 miles on Friday and go hike up a 14er with all the extra group gear on Sat AM and still be the first one to the top......
Back at it starting a couple weeks ago and today ran 3.5 miles at a 10.23 pace. Not so fast and nice to be back moving. You guys don't want pics of me all red faced and sweating like Uncle Schartz at the propane store.

So, what's your opinion of this vs WWC Rye ? i'm going to continue to drink WWC because of the availability thingy. I'm also going to check out Angel's Envy Rye, also, due to availabity.
