How clean does a roe skull have to be before it is measured? Just boiled mine and had a go at cleaning it and what a ball ache! The roe is being mounted as a shoulder mount so will end up being cut so doesn't need to be perfect.
If it has to be spotless has anyone tried buying a pint of maggots from a fishing shop and letting them do the cleaning while it is drying for the min 90 days?
Here it at the point where I got fed up!
I wasn't going to bother but the taxidermist said it was worth trying as it might scrape bronze. Haven't weighed it but they are around 240mm long if that helps offer an opinion?
