Ear splitting

Well i'm trying to tan a red fox... but i'm kinda stuck on the ears... Do i take the cartilage out of the ears, or do i keep them in?

It's called SHOT PLACEMENT not a bigger caliber

Re: Ear splitting

Leave the cartilage in but make sure you turn them all the way to the tips and the very edge. Salt very good.

Re: Ear splitting

You "turn" the ears, as in turning them inside out. There are tools to help with this but I just use a scalpel in the field. Separate the hide from the cartilage, on the backside (hairy part) of the ear. As you are pulling the cartilage and cutting you will be turning the ear inside out, go all the way up to the tip.
