Antelope Horns

I have a full mount male antelope head and a horn mount of same both taken in a Wyoming hunt of about 20 years ago.
I need suggestions on how to clean the mold off the sheaths and how to prevent it from redeveloping.

Re: Antelope Horns

I would try a small scrub brush and some vinegar. It's natural and shouldn't cause any discoloration like a chemical may. As far as stopping it from showing back up, I'm not really sure.

You should ask this in the taxidermy forum.

Re: Antelope Horns

Hi Bob! I have the same thing - a full head, and a skull mount pronghorn. The full mount is at my old house still - with family renting the house -- and I need to take it down and clean it, which will be a real chore (I just don't know where to put it right now. The skull mount was dirty, so I scrubbed it down, slipped the black horns off the skull and scraped and cleaned the bone, then wrapped it with twine so they would fit back tightly. I simply darkened the horns with a black Sharpie pen and it looked real good!

P.S. We need to get together at camp in Cross Fork this fall!

Re: Antelope Horns

By the way Bob -- I also boiled the skull in a pot of water with dish soap...!
