    Hi toad,

    You posted this in the intro section, so I moved it to Trophy Preparation.

    Regarding your question, could the brown bits be left over bits of gristle/fat? Perhaps a bit of extra boiling in some washing soda and a good scrape/scrub before peroxide again?

    Hi Toad Reboil for about five mins if you have washing soda or dish washer powder two tea spoons should be about right then scrape the scull clean again making sure you get all the meat off. Then wash under tap and scrub with nail brush or tooth brush adding a little washing powder rinse a shake dry. paint your peroxcide cream on while the scull is still damp leave for about four hours and wash it off and leave in the sun to dry. I think this should sort your problem out !!!
    Best regards... Dave

    Toad, just keep practicing the hardest bit is removing fur eyes meat the more you get of the better. Boil 1/2 hour straight away in soapy water. When I pressure wash there's hardly anything left on skull , then brush on hydrogen peroxide while head is still wet.Click image for larger version.
