About Us

Ryan Hunting

Bare Bones Mounts is a Maine-based skull cleaning and processing service owned and operated by Ryan Pickoski. As an avid hunter and fisherman, it is important to me to provide you with the quality skull mounts that you will want to show off.

I offer top-quality Dermestid beetle skull cleaning for European mounts, as well as custom work and plaques to accommodate your needs. From Pope & Young elk and Woodland caribou, to small animals and birds, I can do it all.

My services include:

  • Wholesale and retail skull cleaning for trophy scoring 
(Please note that we do not score, but we can arrange for it to be done for you)
  • Customized European mounts
  • Custom plaques
  • Museum-quality restoration and preservation
  • Specialty cleaning and processing by request
