Help on european mount

7 posts in this topic

I was given the other day a mount to do and I'm running into a little issue. It is 2 yrs old and the meat is gone off of it obviously but the skin is still on. Any tips for getting the skin off? I haven't tired anything yet so I don't know how hard it will be to remove or not but I'm just wondering if anyone has any ideas. I was told pry it off and it should crack and brake off and I've also been told to soak it in water till it seperates. Any ideas?

I have soaked them in water and that softened it up enough to cut it off. But, it was not 2 years old but I believe that it should still work.

I've got one that I'd like to clean up and did a little research on that. Seems like either water or water mixed with fabric softener were the choices most suggested...

    • My family is going to be headed to Birch Lake near Babbitt, MN in late June for a week on a houseboat.  This trip is a graduation present for our oldest and I am hoping to make it a week to remember.   I would appreciate any advice ranging from fishing locations, bait, suggested lures, and even sites to see on the lake.  I have done a lot of searching on Google with the hope of finding someone who maybe spent a week on a houseboat on Birch but not a lot of luck.  I have about a month to prepare for the trip so I greatly appreciate everyone input.   Thanks,  
    •     I have had good luck with the "My Plate" app.... It is annoying enough to keep you honest, but simple enough to use.
    •   Yeah well once you fire that bad boy up and show her how it works, she will get impressed pretty quick! 
    • In regards to casement windows, I have always been a fan.... Primarily, because the harder the wind blows, the better seal that you are getting. Don't get me wrong - there are drawbacks such as size restrictions, maintenance of the cranking mechanism, etc... but I like them
    • walleye, Pfunk, monster, we need one more bird to qualify for bragging rights.  You guys still after them?
    • Kept getting pushed back from moving into the new house, but finally heading up to open the camper tomorrow afternoon.  Bought a new leaf blower to keep the outside rugs clean.  On mega clearance at Wally world for 10 bucks...  Told the Mrs. it would've been foolish of me NOT to buy it.  She wasn't impressed.
    • Rot can also be completely separate from the quality of the window.  If you maintain high moisture in the house it will first collect on windows then can drip down and rot out the surrounding frame.
    • Well it looks like you have already found your plumbing company!
    • On the cheat meal issue.  There is only a minor setback physically if you limit to once a week.  What most people don't look at is the psychological benefit to a cheat meal.  The truth is most people who run a diet(excluding athletes and those that maintain a fit lifestyle for prefessional reasons) sneak snacks hear and there.  Sure some dont or dont for a time but most do.  The cheat meal gives you one day or meal all week to look forward to with those snacks to splurge.  This is by far easier than someone saying the diet is three months, or even better, 'I'm never eating processed sugar again'.
