Is there anyone in west central or central Illinois that does this?

Don’t know of anyone anymore.  I bought my colony for $40 and they did really well but they stink and it’s just pretty nasty.  They pick everything clean if the hide is off.  A little peroxide and it looks good.

Talked to this place the other day about doing a coyote skull I just got. Reasonable price and sounded really nice. Said they are super busy!

Do your cleaner a favor and keep your skulls fresh or frozen.  No one likes rotten smells.
