tanned hides and ear problem

Submitted by jim on 08/03/2002. ( ) 32.100.97.130

just tanned my second deer cape with the auto tanner.noticed in the ears that the hair on the cartilage side came out .(most of it)
is this preventable.or am i doing something wrong? i use tanning crystals from Van Dykes with the water soluable oil.would taking the cartilage out prevent this.also , after checking the archives for quite some time i could not find the answer i'm looking for.if your cape is tanned then put in freezer can it be pulled out ,repairs done then put back in freezer. can this be done numerous times if the need be or will this in some way hurt the hide. thanks
