there are a few ways to do this.

1 macceration

2 beetles

3 remove as much meat as you can then place the skull in 3 bin liners with a pint of water [sealed]

this is what you will need to do to sweat the the horns from the cores this process

may take 3/4 weeks or even longer

once you get the horns off you then can go ahead and boil the skull for cleaning.

FFS don't take the 'horns' off it - I will be useless without them!!!
