Nice Pedro!! I have found that the quicker you get on them after the kill, the less trouble you will have with the Spur shell/sheath coming off the actual Bone unless you just removed them on your own? Like you, the ones I have saved of mine, I just make a simple design and add to my necklace but if someone wants something special I'll try that also like the ones here in the single pics...All of my Daughters friends have a spur necklace from me it seems lol...She told me I could be selling them but that's illegal here in NC. It really is addictive to craft such items to have as memories Like my Single Spur necklace that I shot on my Late Mothers Birthday...Had 2 Beards but had broke his other spur off...This 1 is a tad over 1.5....Keep us posted with the end result.

2013 spurs

Pedro is there any way you could describe the process you used to get them looking that way........ I have legs piled up in my garage from the past 5 or 6 years I've been putting off doing something with.

These were fresh. Spurs were removed from leg within a few days after harvest by going around the base if spur with razor. Using a piece of rubber around the spur and a pair of adjustable pliers you can twist the spur cap off very easily. The ones you have that are dried wont come off like that. I cut them on a band saw and removed all the skin, flesh, tendons, and marrow. Boiled them in soap water for an hour, cleaned again. Soaked in ammonia for two weeks, then rinse put in peroxide for six to eight hours, take out if peroxide and sit in sun for a day. Super glue spur caps.

The dries ones you have will need to be cut to length, fleshed & cleaned, then boil with soap water. After 15 min start checking caps and try to remove spur cap. After caps are removed, boil as to desired cleanliness. Then continue as described.

I am sure there are many other ways for this to be done. I searched the net and found these two methods. I do like the way every thing is clean under the cap. The cutting and cleaning and one hour of boiling of fives sets took less than two hours. Then it is just a matter of letting the chemicals do their job.
