    Fallow head

    hii shot a fallow buck a while back left it for a month or so them boiled it out, all went well only the smell is terrible.
    i,m pretty sure all the bits are cleaned of it as i power washed it. would peroxide remove the smell.

    Don't leave it to rot before you boil it.
    Peroxide should get rid of most of the smell, and leaving it to dry right out for a few weeks.

    To some extent yes, but really it would benefit from fresh air and sunlight, be patient, it won't smell if it's allowed to dry out properly. If you have an electric radiator in the garage leave it near that and let the smell be released away from civilisation......
    Opinions are like arseholes....... we all have them, and most of them stink
