Cool!  Did you use a pressure washer?  When I did my deer skull this last fall I found that awfully helpful.

Hopefully it is all degreased. I soaked it for a week in soapy water, changing the water out every 24 hrs.

Looks sweet so far  :tup:

Yeah looks good, but I can tell you that a bear can and usually is more like a month plus to degrease in warm water the whole time, they are a pain!

We'll see. I mixed a few batches of oxyclean/borax/dish soap.  It appeared to really cut the grease and slime.

Good job. I did one myself a year and a half ago. It's a lot of work but well worth the effort. You did great!
