My Wife worked for a taxidermist and she use to help scrape, boil and bleach buffalo skulls and other critters. I think its great for smaller game, not really fond of it for Deer or elk. Buffalo, bear, boar, beaver and wolverine all look cool, unless you have an artist do some painting on the skull. I have a horse skull my mother in law painted on and my father in law had my wife clean, boil and bleach a long horn that came out great. I guess I am partial to the hide being on for Deer, Elk, antelope, Carribou, goats and big horn sheep. I guess if it has horns or antlers I like the hide on.
