I am not sure on the

I am not sure on the regulation concerning bringing back the skull or even a whole animal so you may want to check it out to make sure before you go.  Your outfitter should be able to tell you the regulations.  I presume that is has something to do with the "mad cow" thing that was going on in Canada a few years ago but I am just guessing.  My outfitter just boiled my bear skull enough that it was cooked, when the US Customs officer looked at it he didn't say anything about it.  He didn't want to see the bear hide but may of presumed that it was taken care of properly, who knows?

Bringing them back whole is

Bringing them back whole is fairly normal from what he said. Just have to get the CITES tag before crossing. 

I'd rather have Matt skin it himself than me do a slash and hack on it if possible.

I'll continue looking into it though just to be safe.

 

I was thinkin your head was white and dry.lol Didn't think about just cooked.

I wished that it would of

I wished that it would of been white and dry instead it was kinda purple and greasy. The guy that I dropped it of to to whiten it up with the beetles and chemicals looked at it and wondered. He said that it soaked in the chemical degreaser and whitener than any other skull that he has done. But in the end it came out nice.
