We have successfully used elastrator bands on horns that size. They have to be restrained, clip the hair back a bit at the base and roll the band on until into the hair line. A few weeks and they are gone, no blood.
do you double them up in case one breaks or maybe wrap some electrical tape on it so they don't rub on the bands?

Have had to replace a couple but negatory to both questions. Works on bigger stuff also as long as you can get the ring to reach the hair line.
