Easiest and fastest is probably using the Beetles, it's not the cheapest method though.
boil the meat amd spray out the nasial cavitives with hosepipe
The cheapest is fireant mound. but to keep the skull lookin good make sure you have as much meat and such off of it and then put it in a bleach/peroxide mix. it will get the rest of the meat and such lose and easy to remove and also make the bone very white. make sure to keep the horns out of the mix. Use a wire or something to suspend it to keep the horns out.
if you wait till spring you can hang it from a tree limb and let the bugs eat it clean in about a month there wont be any skin or meat left
As an (ex)worker in a taxidermy studio(Jonas Bros./Denver) brw7979 get's a + 1 from me !
It's the way "we" used to do it !
beetles is the fastest
If you need it done fast then do it yourself! clean as much meat off as you can... then soak in peroxide(I always use bleach but some people seem to think it turns the skull yellowish), again scrape away as much meat as possible, and repeat. Also fine grain sand paper can help a lot as well. but if you want the easiest way then let the critters take care of it. last time i tried that though a bigger critter ran off with it.
