Hi guys, I have received my last Asian Water Buffalo Skull mount only to find that both the skull and horns have not been treated fully and both are emitting a foul smell. I currently have them separate and outside in the sun. Is there anything I can do to speed up the process. The outfitter has recently gone out of business and is not taking calls.

thanks.

Soak everything in a commercial degreaser and water solution for several days. Next cover the skull and coat the inside of the horn sheaths in powdered borax and set them to the side and the smell will slowly begin to dissipate. Add the borax while still wet so it will stick to the parts and begin to absorb the odor.
