  1. I once walked upon a guy who was sticking his arm under a lunker structure. I thought what the heck is this guy doing. Turns out he was attaching a fresh deer rack under the structure so the water & microorganisms would quickly clean up the bones. Just thought it was interesting.

  2. I’ve found a couple less than fully decayed skulls while out, I take them home and bury them in a 55gallon trash bin in dirt and leave them for a couple months, make sure to cover the top to keep critters out and in a while you’ll have a very clean skull and rack. Never thought about the creek being a good cleaner but it makes sense.

  3. It seems that those cows were killed by the other cows in the pasture.

  4. An old native american trick for getting the membrane and meat stuff off a hide was to put it in a stream with rocks on top to hold it in place. The insects and critters would pick it clean, saving many hours of scraping.
