Hey guys, What is the best way to get this skull wall worthy? Is there anything I can do to the antlers since they are so sun bleached? Thanks in advance.

Trim off what the bugs did not eat and bleach the skull. The horns will not look good if you stain them when bleached so best leave them be. Just my $0.02 Cool find though up

Use linseed oil on the horns and you can stain them. I used it on some dropped antlers I found in New Mexico and they turned out fine.

I have never tried linseed, that could work. I usually use Watco Danish wood oil when the bottoms bleach out when doing a euro.

Yep, linseed oil wipe off excess Walnut MinnWax. Works quite well, IMO.
