How long?

How long do you let a skull cap (w/ antlers) dry out before mounting it? For the record, I just intend to do an antler mount (as opposed to a full shoulder mount or something similar).
Thanks in advance.....
If your dog thinks that your the greatest, don't go seeking a second opinion!

Although times can vary due to temperature, humidity and fat content of the skull plate, I would advise a 60 day drying period. Cover the cap with Borax to discourage insects.
