I bought this for my son for a birthday present who does Texas mounts on a regular basis. It does not even boil the water in fact you can stick your hand in the water is not hot.

I have boiled skulls with gas and electric stoves and allowed skulls to decay with varying degrees of success. This product is convenient and easy to use. Last weekend, I cleaned 1 half skull mount, 4 skull caps and a full skull. I have never been that productive. One item of interest: I pack skulls in salt for shipment. Be sure to clean and soak the skull prior to boiling. Apparently, salt in the water increases conductivity resulting in the breaker kicking out. The solution was to empty the water and start over and it worked flawlessly.

Bought this in early novemeber. I did 15 skulls in it and the bottom of the bucket cracked. Called On Time Feeders up (makers of the Buck Boiler) and complianed. They were great. They asked me to email them a copy of my recepit and within three days of calling them I had a brand new Buck Boiler sitting on my porch. Best customer service I have ever experienced. Now for how the product works. Some times it takes a little longer too boil every now and again. I sit this in my garage and keep it out of the cold to help it keep up to temp. This seems to help and I would recomend following the instructions. Over all a great product.

This was not the first Buckboiler I have purchased through Bass Pro. I am a wild game butcher, averaging over 300 whitetail per year, in addition to moose, bear and caribou. As an addition service I offer skull cleaning and european mounts for my customers. The first Buckboiler lasted over 2 years and cleaned well over 100 heads. It may be a bit pricey for the average hunter who may only clean one or two heads per season, but for continuous use for almost 2 months per season, it has been an ideal product for me. Easy to clean, easy to use, does a great job. The water level must be monitored regularly, but this is to be expected with evaporation during boiling. Less than fresh heads produce a nasty odour in the steam, so outdoor use is best. Works better when temps are 0 or higher.
