I have a large boar head that i have buried to let the decomposers decompose. How long do i leave it underground if I'm wanted most of the flesh to be dissolved? When i remove it, what are the next steps i should take to prepare it and bleach it for a euro style mount? The more info and details y'all can give me the better as I'm pretty much in the dark in this area.

It may take a year or more to decompose. The best way to de-flesh it is to boil or use beetles. Then use peroxide to whiten the bone. You need to get the strong stuff from a beauty supply shop. The peroxide you get at the drug store is too weak.

As mustafa said look for youtube vids.

Boil it with some dawn then 40 volume peroxide soak for a couple of days.
