I haven't gotten a hog yet, but when I do I'd like to keep the skull. Could someone explain the process of preparing the skull for a european mount?

hello

im sure there are better ways to do it i know i have read JJ Hacks stories and his look real good the only way i know how to do it is to skin the skull scrape it and boil it others say putting it in a ant bed but im sure other critters would run off with it unless it was secured. i use modeling clay to help keep the teeth and tusks to stay in place hope this has helped

Get all the flesh off of it, with out cutting into the bone and then boil it. Clean it up real good and let it dry out for a couple of days. Start removing the teeth which should fall out at this point so be carful. I use elmers glue to hold the teeth in place. I then get a small paint brush and paint elmers glue on the skull, and let it dry for a day. I apply more elmers glue and repeat one more time. Skull looks white and ready to mount on a nice board or plack. Hope this helped. :D
