Ear Problem

Submitted by Barry Smith on 2/18/02. ( klorrae@yellowbananas.com )

I looked threw all the archives in the forum and cannot find what i am looking for. I am doing my first deer head and the one ear has a quarter size chunk tore out of the edge of the ear. It appears to be from fighting and is not healed over because it looks like it happen a couple of weeks before the deer was taken. I was wondering how i should go about to mount this ear.

Its a natural ear

It's common and natural to have ears like you describe. Invert the ear, sew the edge, reinvert and mount like normal. If you are using earliners, cut the liner to correspond with the shape of the ear.

it is not an inconvenience to use the archives. it is a revelation , not just a simple answer. if you are serious about learning the trade than take five minutes and get several, quick answers from several sources in the archives. there's not a whole lot new under the sun. some of the new chemicals might not be found in the archives, but this is rare. go forth my son and learn..........
