I am doing my first attempt at home tanning on a coyote pelt. I don't know what to do with the ears. Can you skin out the cartlidge or can you leave it. I don't want the hair to slip on the ears so what is my best option?

i dont think it is nessary just for a tanned wall hangar, just remove the meat from the ear butts and salt heavy and you should be fine. keep in mind they will shrivel and become hard as a rock though.
Before you are totally done with the tanning, invert the ear to somewhat of the normal status and then allow it to dry.
