Wipe them down with a wet rag. Rub them gently with a high grit piece of sandpaper for a minute, then wipe them down again. Polish them with brown shoe polish, one coat. Let dry for a day, then apply a coat of polyurethane. Dry, then shine with a dry rag. Don't hang them in the sun. Touch up once a month with pledge. Congrats:)

congratulations. Some people use "nail polish" they are pretty much made of the same stuff. Clean with a brush (soft dish) and ivory soap.

I don't know any kind I guess. What kind of rifle did you use? if you don't mind my asking.

I gave it up. Everytime I went out with a shotgun I never even saw tracks. Without a gun or rifle, I could hear them scatering all over the woods. Never bagged one.

The only reason why I'm not yelling at you to leave them the way they are, is because they're small. If you get one with a bigger rack, don't try to whiten them.

There's a new law in Florida that they need to have a certain number of points. I'm not sure of the number but I think it's 6
