My boy and I took a couple of public land Javi’s in south Texas last month. Finally had a free day to get the heads out of the freezer and get them skinned out. Gonna let them simmer the rest of today and see what we get. Threw in a box of baking soda and some laundry detergent. Hoping to get temp to 180, but it’s been slow to get there. Will post result pics tomorrow. Wish us luck...

Pretty happy with the results!

24 hours at 145 there was still some pretty tenacious tissue attached in places. I rinsed and did another 12 hours at 145 with half a bottle of peroxide cream in the water. The plaque on their teeth is gonna take some work. These guys were definitly not flossing regularly!

Those look great! Javalina make amazing euro mounts, would love to get one someday.

For the teeth, I find painting the creme on the putting a paper towel over it painting on a second layer of crewmen in the towel then whole thing in cling wrap and letting it sit for a week works great.
