Get that out of my house!
« on: December 17, 2020, 07:40:41 PM »
  :chuckle:

This was my wife’s reaction when I brought my whitetail euro into the house. It has a pretty good funky smell after I finished the whitening process. What do you pros do to get the smell out? Other than the smell it turned out nice

Haha, been there. Maybe someone will have a better suggestion than this, but I typically just leave them outside (somewhere under cover but with airflow) for a couple weeks and the smell goes away.

The smell will dissipate once it thoroughly dries out.

After doing euros of two antelope and whitetail in my diner room this year I looked at my girlfriend and said, you know, I really appreciate you putting up with this.

She laughed and said... I didn't even realize it!

But in all seriousness, I set mine in the garage for two weeks and the smell is done.

We pour a baking soda slurry in them and let dry til everyone agrees the smell is gone. Then rinse it out. Not sure it helps much more than just letting them dry and air out but it can't hurt and it works in the fridge so why not.

Get a mounted skunk to blame the smell on.

I always set mine in the greenhouse for a few weeks to dry them out - never had a problem with them stinking

So I used a degreaser while boiling the skull maybe not enough?!

If you just boiled it, there is likely some cooked meat on the inner parts of the skull causing most of the smell.  In my experience, boiling will get some grease out, but also seems to send some deeper into the bone that become difficult to get out even when properly degreasing.

Soak it in a hydrogen peroxide/water solution for about 7 days. That'll help with the smell and also helps bleach them out a little more.

:yeah:

I used this stuff this year and only requires 24hr soak to get the smell out and helps clean them some more

I have stuffed a couple dryer sheets into the brain cavity before. Once it dries out it should be fine

 If the skull was properly cleaned it would not have any bad smell but many times the antlers get pretty stinky from being  submerged in the degreaser. Is it the skull or antlers?  If it's the skull it needs more work.  If it's the Antlers it will be pretty easy to remove the smell .

More than likely you still have some "meat" either in the ear canals or deep inside the naval cavity.  Without beetles getting into the tiny crevices in the ear canal that junk will be nearly impossible to get out without breaking out the canal.  It's super easy to do and you don't notice it on the final product.  Just take a screw driver and insert it or hammer it into the canal, put some force down and most of that canal bone should break free fairly easily.  Once you do it, you will easily see what bone will "break out" or come out easy.  Almost like an entire separate bone section to the skull.  It's amazing how much tissue gets left between that and the skull.
