Bleaching Skulls: Bleach versus Hydrogen Peroxide

If you want beautiful white skulls to add to your collection, then bleaching is really the only way to go. You can clean a skull until the cows come home, but you will never get that beautiful pristine white without treating it first. However, the term “bleaching a skull” is a bit of a misnomer. It makes less informed hunters believe that you should use literal bleach to get the effect, but the truth is you never want to use bleach on bone. Bleach can remove any excess tissue from bone without a doubt, but it will damage the skull itself in a very permanent way.

They must be handled and stored with great care, due to the fact that wings and delicate pieces will break easily. What can hunters do, then, to carefully move their prize from the field to bird mounts? The best thing to do with a new bird is to make sure it is protected from oxygen. You’ll need to wrap, then freeze, it properly as close to the capture as possible. Avoid frost-free freezers; they will pull out moisture, ruin the meat of the bird, and destroy the delicate parts faster.
