while prepping I discovered a portion of my elks inner ear slpped. Just one ear dang it. Ideas on repairing that area once the mount is dry. I thought about using some coyote inner ear hair, but not sure hao to secure it........

Without cutting a or even cutting a piece of skin with the hair on it can be epoxyed back in place. If you have no skin to replace the piece then you need to epoxy hair back in small patches.
Mix up some epoxy and place the hair in the epoxy and then place it on the bad areas making sure the hair is going in the direction you need. This is a timely way of doing it but done right you will see no repairs.
