I like doing the work myself.  Little more gradifying to me when it's finished.  Anyway I pretty much do exactly what polarbear does only I use a combination of Magnesium Carbonate which I get from Van Dyke's ( and mix it 3% Hydrogen Peroxide.  Mix it into a nice paste and brush it on the skull.  Pretty much clean the skull before and rinse it after just the way pb described.

I agree I like doing myself better. I used a fillet knife on the brains and then with the nasal passages I used a piece of safety wire. Also when the skull is done to your liking I coated mine with a clear coat, this will keep it from weathering. I have done a couple like this and have never had any problems. I know if you boil the skull to long it will crumble. Also if the base of the antlers get discolored you can use a wood stain to take them back to the original color. I used a turkey fryer pot and tied the antlers to a 2x4 and set it on top of the pot this way it will keep the antlers out of the water, and the pot is deep enough to submerge the whole head. The first part of the skull to fall off will be the lower job, if you want to save this fish it out of the pot and when it is cleaned to your liking take and let it dry and coat in peroxide and let is sit in the sun, then take some super glue and place a bad behind each tooth, this will insure that the teeth will stay in place. The when the whole skull is done use super glue or expoy to attach the lower jaw to the rest of the skull. I'll attach some photos of the ones I have done. I did my big 3x3, my uncles 3x3, another 3x3 and  a spike.
