    No problem, if you have any questions on this I will have DanP chime in.

    Just for clarification sake, you will want to remove the horns when working on an Antelope. We didn't have time to let the horns detach and make this week's video. Considering though, that Antelope are one of several species that with antlers that don't leave the skull the broader picture was worth painting.

    That's a good video. How do you guys like to pull the horns on the antelope. The best I've found is to seal it in a garbage bag for a month and then they slide right off. Sure does stink though!

    We do about the same thing. Give it a month or two and it will be ready to slide right off and its easy to remove the nasty stuff.

    I always boil the horns. Keep checking them and the horns will come right off, no nasty smell and don't have to wait a month. Definitely scrape the bone once the horn is removed, will be easy to do after boiling.

    I'd be careful boiling antelope horns. You can ruin them, as in the sheaths fall apart, if not extremely carefully. I've always let the head, with no skin, rot with bag over horns, as stated previously. The sheaths will pop right off and boil the whole head. It does stink though so you need an iron gut for the process.

    Screw driver and latex gloves......

    If you mash up the brains, boil a little bit then use the screw driver it will get a lot out.
