    Ants work good on fish jaws.

    Pick out a spot in your yard and bury the jaws. Earth parasites will clean it up

    I have boiled the meat off but the jaw fell apart. I suppose I can hot glue (or some kind of glue) it it back together. Bones are clean as a whistle tho.

    Def some good eats, beautiful fish!

    Steam them, let cool and just pick the meat off.

    I put my jaws in a lobster bait cage to avoid that! I then put the cage inside of another larger cage to keep the coons from dragging it away.

    The boiling/steaming thing worked for me. Jaws will separate.

    I put my goat head on the bbq, wrapped in a lot of foil until it was soft enough to pick out. Then I boiled them for a bit and scraped the rest of the meat off. I used some hydrogen peroxide to whiten them up.

    That's cool!!! Funny how the old Goats all have tooth decay. Mine was actually missing one.

    I want to make a mount for the jaws to display them. Not sure how or what to use though.

    Rocky did give me the option to use them in the mount, just fyi

    Skip the beetles. Skip the ants. Boil some water and dip it as u peel off all the cooked meat. It literally takes 3 mins!
