I have some ears...

that I cannot open all the way. They have three holes from tags being in it. The last 2" to the tip I cannot open. I put dp on both sides is that enough to preserve them? Or do I have to inject it with something.

Sounds like they are freezer burned

You will have to inject them with some warm water and keep working at it. They need to be turned right out to the tip. If you aren't using ear openers you should get a pair.

Another question

I just started my first deer and I took my time turning the ears and I think they turned out very nice, but one question I have is do I have to remove the white cartiledge at all on the deer. In the McKenzie magizine they showed rasping cartiledge and removing soem also does this need to be done?
