    Some years ago I tried cleaning a dear skull by simply burying it, having noted how clean specimens found in the woods are. It sounds silly I know, but the results, though they took a few months, were amazing. I made a youtube video of the process. Well, I got to thinking I should show some of the results I have gotten in the years since. It might not be for everyone, like places where you didn't have a good spot or in bear country. ( use common sense here) But if you have a good place to put it, it's easy and very effective ( NOTE: I am not knocking the usual method. Just sharing another easy way that can, and does work. ) Here is the short video: (A link to the first, start to finish process is in the description box)

    Do you bury one with the hair and skin on or do you skin it first? I have done plenty by boiling and a few with a pressure washer. The pressure washer method is very messy.

    That's the beauty...just chuck it in a hole hair and all, and after three warm months it's like a magic trick. A gentle spray with a garden hose and you are done. The origonal vid: ( best watched on computer. old youtube captions don't show on smartphones) a note on the teeth on the one skull: I don't know if that fella was inbred or what but he had some with messed up roots and some missing. truth be told I think they were missing when he died. Never had any trouble with teeth since. They may be a tad loose but that's it.
